Jeffrey Lewis @ BV-SXSW DJ-Space Ducks show (more by Ryan Barkan)
Jeffrey Lewis

Jeffrey Lewis reports:

Jeffrey Lewis & his band The Junkyard will open for Pulp at Radio City Music Hall in Manhattan on Wednesday, April 11.
This mark Jeffrey Lewis & The Junkyard's first show in NYC since they sold out the Mercury Lounge last November. The band will be joined by new member Kristen Andreasson (Uncle Earl/Sometimes Why), who will basically be debuting on stage with the Junkyard in front of what is probably their biggest-ever American concert. Yikes!

Jeffrey's last album "A Turn in the Dream-Songs," his sixth for Rough Trade Records, was released last October and has been featured on Soundcheck and All Things Considered among other places. Jeffrey is just coming off a solo acoustic tour with Wooden Wand which saw him make stops all along the East Coast, including a special show (with Kimya Dawson, Daniel Johnston, and Built to Spill) at SXSW as part of the Brooklyn Vegan event for the release of Daniel Johnston's multi media project Space Ducks.

We just posted a new set of pictures from that special SXSW event on BV Austin. Check them out. Meanwhile, Jeffrey is out on the road. Catch him at one of the dates listed below...

Seriously? Big sold out Radio City reunion show and this is who they get to open? Come on, Jarvis. You're better than this.

No name hacks have been opening shows at RCMH for a while. They'll let anyone play there these days.

I'm pretty sure that Joy Division is opening. It's the same deal as the Fader Fort secret show for Elliott Smith at SXSW this year. If you tweet hard enough, they will come back from the grave and place. It worked for Elliott, but he only played half of "2:45 A.M." and then passed out again. It was worth it though. It will be cool if it works for Ian and he just does one twitchy leg kick as "She's Lost Control" starts off. I'm a bad person.

Tickets just got cheaper for these concerts. I predict you can get orchestra tickets for either night for $20 at 8pm on the night of the show. And $10 at 9pm. And tickets will be free if it's raining that night.

Interesting Jeffrey Lewis has never gotten a single comment before. Time to post something new today BV!

You're pretty retarded, 12:23. Tickets will not get cheaper because there's a shitty opener. Everyone is there for Pulp anyway.

Posted by Anonymous | March 31, 2012 4:02 PM

Pulp sucks

Posted by Anonymous | March 31, 2012 4:22 PM

4:22 - Either you a troll who comes to BV only to read BBG's metal post or you're some dumb fucking teenager that listens Foster the People and Gotye. Do your homework, dipshit.

Posted by Anonymous | March 31, 2012 4:45 PM

^ you sir are a douchechill, 4:45. I'm not even 4:22, but the boy is right - Pulp is tremendously overrated. And I have full confidence that by the time the clock stikes 4/12 the entirety of NYC will know that fact, again.

Posted by Anonymous | March 31, 2012 6:06 PM

Pulp always sucked.
