Last night (4/5) at Flash Factory in NYC, a Bernie Sanders benefit show went down with a handful of bands, including Wild Belle, The So So Glos, and the live debut of NAF (aka Nice As Fuck). NAF is a supergroup of sorts, with Rilo Kiley’s Jenny Lewis, Au Revoir Simone’s Erika Forster (aka Erika Spring), and Tennessee Thomas of ’00s-era LA band The Like. That makes this the second band Tennessee Thomas and Erika Forster (both huge Bernie boosters) formed together in the past couple of years, the other being Summer Moon with Nikolai Fraiture of The Strokes.

The three of them had teased NAF prior to the show, sharing pictures on Instagram of the trio and tagging them NAF and/or “nice as fuck.” Here are a few pictures and a very short video clip from the show:

NAF will continue to play live, and they’re set to open the East Coast leg of the upcoming M. Ward tour. (M. Ward recently opened for Jenny and joined her on stage at her Rabbit Fur Coat 10th anniversary shows.) The M. Ward/NAF tour hits NYC on May 4 at Webster Hall. Tickets for that show are still available.

Tennessee, along with Alix Brown, DJ’d the David Bowie Tribute‘s afterparty at City Winery last Thursday (3/31).
