Jenny & Johnny

Unfortunately, I missed most of the [CMJ] day panels due to work and school - but I was able to get my badge and head over to my favourite venue, Irving Plaza, to see Jenny and Johnny...

At Irving Plaza, a more mature-sounding Jenny Lewis with fresh material awaited my presence. Jenny and Johnny do drift a bit away from Rilo Kiley by adding a mix of country and a male voice to Lewis's new sound. The country guitar twang on "Scissor Runner" was defintely more pronounced when performed live and was appreciated by everyone in attendance. Jenny also dedicated "New York Cartoon" to the people of New York City, which was something I appreciated...
Jonathan Rice has been a great addition to Jenny Lewis's repertoire. Hope there's more Jenny and Johnny in the future. -[B-Sides]

Jenny & Johnny headlined the Ground Control Touring showcase at Irving Plaza last night (10/19), their only CMJ show . The openers on the other hand are each playing other times in NYC this week. They were Wild Nothing, Times New Viking, Happy Birthday, and La Sera.

Jenny and Johnny are now on tour. More pictures, some videos and the setlist from the show (just the headliner for now), below...

Irving Plaza is your "favorite venue." Low standards.

um, hold on . . . where does "boring, nothing more than bland rock for Williamsburg poseurs, will be disbanded in a year for dead-end solo careers" fit into this review?

Ok, she ALWAYS sucked but she did used to be hot - didn't she? And yes, this is the only level she should be discussed on.

Irving Plaza = favorite venue = I don't read your review. That place is wack, Bowery and Bell House are so much better.
