We have been given the opportunity to play with Jeffrey Lewis at the Oxford Art Factory on the 10th of March. Last time Jeffrey Lewis came out he played solo with his picture book and quirky tunes. This time he is bringing a band so it'll be Jeffrey Lewis and The Junkyard.
Jeffrey Lewis is like a NYC younger Daniel Johnston style performer in the vaine of Kimya Dawson. He's been described as a comic book maestro, although he disagrees with this claim in his comics*. He writes songs about Will Oldham's glasses and getting kicked out of clubs but his story telling ability is what keeps you engaged to the end. Tickets are $25 and available here. It should be an awesome night, I know I'm looking forward to it.
Jeffrey Lewis 'Willamsburg Will Oldham Horror' love this song
