There's a fantasy Jenny Lewis that has grown in fans' minds over her four albums with Rilo Kiley and two solo records the second of which, Acid Tongue, is out this week. This is the ballsy, lusty Lewis of songs such as "15" in which she revels in portraying Southern jail-bait , who flashes her knickers in sultry photo-shoots and gigs, and once felt moved to record a song nude. Put out to work by her mother as a child-actress in Hollywood, aged four, she worked alongside Lucille Ball, and Angelina Jolie. This glamorous CV has made major labels think she'll make it big any day now, with or without Rilo Kiley, who've toured with Coldplay.
How can you not adore the child actress- turned musician? Beck produced the kick off single off of her upcoming album The Voyager , the rest of the album of which is produced by Ryan Adams. That never ceases to impress my very uncoordinated brain! As in motherf-ing Star Wars , John Williams! With everyone still bustling about, darting in and out of their seats as they make the mad dashes to and from the ever lengthening bathroom and bar lines — for, in fact, Jenny Lewis was NOT the headlining attraction for the evening, except for a select few like myself , the marquee advertised Ray Lamontagne — Jenny Lewis and her band crept out onto the stage. Despite some sound maladies one incredibly overloud lead guitar, in particular , the set that was brought forth stunned the unexpected crowd much in the way The Belle Brigade had caught me off guard, and then some. As yet unreleased songs off of her soon to hit the streets album were spread out through a nearly hour long set that included some Rilo Kiley songs, much to my delight. Also timid was the lighting crew, if there was one. For the entirety of her performance the lights stayed frozen in place, never following the flirty frontwoman even when she climbed atop boxes or edged out closer to the audience.
