"It was a great show with a nice mix of songs from Rabbit Fur Coat & Acid Tongue and I have to say, the songs from Acid Tongue (most of which I was seeing live for the first time tonight) came across very well, especially "The Next Messiah"! It was a a really nice show tonight and I had a lot of fun!" [Sean]
Jenny Lewis took the stage at The Apollo for the second time in a month on Saturday night (Oct 4) (the first time was for an Elvis Costello show taping) (Elvis also appears on her new album). Last weekend Jenny played twice at Austin City Limits.

Sarah Silverman (who made a guest appearance in one of Jenny's videos) made a surprise appearance as the Apollo opener. More pictures below...

What's the deal with Kanye West and airports? Last week, the hip-hop megastar was arrested at LAX following a confrontation with a photographer. And Entourage fans will recall the episode in which West gave Vince and crew a ride to Cannes on his plane. Now comes word that the rapper is testing out new material on strangers he happens to meet in airport lounges. So says Rilo Kiley singer Jenny Lewis, who bumped into the rap megastar at an airport a couple of weeks back while she was en route to performing at the Democratic Convention. "We missed our flight and had to wait a couple of hours in the lounge," says Lewis, whose second solo album, Acid Tongue, is scheduled for release on Sept. 23. "I noticed Kanye West was waiting for the same flight. He looked over and said, 'Excuse me, would you mind listening to my new track?' And so he put his headphones on my head and I listened to two of his new songs. He had no idea who I was. I guess he was doing research." [ew]
Jenny finished up her tour at the Shubert Theatre in New Haven, Connecticut on Sunday.

Fine performance, but a bit short (one hour main set plus a three-song encore). Plenty of good material from "Rabbit Fur Coat" could've easily been accommodated.

Setlist

Jack Killed Mom
The Charging Sky
Rise Up With Fists
Bad Man's World
Black Sand
Carpetbaggers
You Are What You Love
Acid Tongue
Melt Your Heart
The Next Messiah
Sing a Song for Them
--------------
Love Hurts
Godspeed
See Fernando

The Apollo Theater seems to have a no photos policy at all of the shows I've attended there. In the past they have forced you to check cameras/cellphones w cameras at the door. I guess allowing you to hold on to it and then flashlighting & speaking to you instead isn't as bad but they should have announced the no photos policy or posted signs then.

It's The Apollo and they don't have to do a fucking thing.

I like Jewish girls like everyone else, but I agree with 1:47...hot but no substance.
