This event is 21 and over
Jeffrey Lewis & Los Bolts (NYC, Rough Trade Records) play a crazy, original mix of scuzzy urban indie-rock, literate lyrics and comic book punk, like a 21st Century mash-up of Sonic Youth, Pete Seeger and R. Crumb. Jeffrey has done tours in Europe and America and Australia and Asia and elsewhere, a few tours every year since 2001, as well as sometimes playing as the opening act for bands like the Mountain Goats, Daniel Johnston, Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks, The Fall, Pulp, Roky Erickson, The Vaselines and other luminaries. Jeffrey has released seven critically acclaimed albums worldwide on Rough Trade Records (licensed through Matador in the USA), in addition to occasional self-releases and projects on other labels (like K Records and Don Giovanni), and Jeffrey continues to self-publish his art and writing in an ongoing underground comic book series called Fuff. With his current Los Bolts bandmates Brent (Moldy Peaches) Cole on drums and Mem (Cat Tatt) Pahl on bass, Jeffrey has recently released a covers album called “Works by Tuli Kupferberg (1923-2010)” on Don Giovanni Records, plus a deluxe vinyl reissue of his 2005 Rough Trade album “City & Eastern Songs.” Jeffrey Lewis & Los Bolts have recorded a brand new full-length album in Nashville with producer Roger Moutenot (Yo La Tengo), with release date tba!
Lys Guillorn & Her Band
Lys Guillorn’s recent sound is best described as “Nancy Sinatra on a grunge bender.” The singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Shelton, Connecticut is a stylistic shape-shifter, dipping her blue cowgirl boots in folk and psych-rock. She has two full-length studio records of original material, an oddities collection, and a couple of EPs on her own label Little Cowgirl Records. She is joined by her band: Julie Beman (Chica Non Grata) on keys and organ, Eric Bloomquist (Chica Non Grata, Bronson Rock, Buttondowns) on bass, and Peter Riccio (The Sawtelles) on drums. Their most recent single “Tinctoria” was released in May of 2018.
“So if oddly uplifting, folk, blues country-infused acoustic semi-electric psychedelic dark pop music is your thing, please say hello to Lys Guillorn, you'll get along just fine.” - Geraint Jones, Comes With a Smile #14 (UK)
