Jeffrey Lewis releasing “What Would Pussy Riot Do?” single, playing book release show at Secret Project Robot tonight

by Bill Pearis


Jeffrey Lewis just put out a collaborative record with The Peter Stampfel Band but already has a new three-track 7″ coming out on August 27 via Rough Trade. The title track is “WWPRD” which stands for “What Would Pussy Riot Do?” The always thoughtful Lewis muses about ethics and polics, saying Pussy Riot are true heroes who put their money where their mouth is: “The world needs punk rock heroes…bands who break through walls with speakers, not just try to sell you sneakers.” You can watch video of him performing “WWPRD” live in London, below.

Lewis played one of the Summerscreen shows last month, and will play again in Brooklyn tonight (8/15) at Secret Project Robot. The show is final date on a short East Coast promotional tour for the book Gender & Sexuality For Beginners which Lewis illustrated and was written by Jaimee Garbacik. The latter will read excerpts from the book and the night also features The Best Thing Ever. The show is also a benefit for the ACLU.

Jeffrey Lewis will then head to the UK for the Reading and Leads festivals. All tour dates are listed, plus the live version of “WWPRD,” below.
