Jenny Lewis

Fans turning up to Jenny Lewis’s set at the Glass House last night received a special treat. It was not that BF Jonathan Rice came out on stage, because when is he not onstage with her, and it was not that they covered “Love Hurts” together, because they do that a bunch, too. (You can watch their rendition from Elvis Costello’s Spectacle wrap party.) On the door a flyer announced a surprise screening of Welcome To Van Nuys, Jenny’s forthcoming documentary on the recording Acid Tongue. Our photographer Andrew Youssef was there to shoot the scene and says it featured cameos from Jenny buddies Zooey Deschanel, Elvis Costello, and M. Ward, and mostly focused on studio footage and “making of” scenes. Van Nuys is where Acid Tongue was recorded. It’s also Jenny’s hometown. Now you know. In addition to the film, the Glass House hosted sets from Dawes and of course Ms. Lewis, who dedicated “Under The Blacklight” to her friend Blake and charmed her way through forgotten verses on “Rabbit Fur Coat.” Next stop: Coachella.

    her camel toe looks good…seriously. hot.

  4. some moose knuckle in picture 5 as well. Still looks hot.

  5. Nice legs. She’s no Tina Turner, but nice legs. A Jenny-Zooey duo would’ve been nice.

    someone’s gotta say it: that outfit is just plain awful.

    I was right in front to see all of her grandeur. She was incredible. She gave me the goosebumps the entire night. And her Welcome to Van Nuys documentary was really cool. You have just got to love Jenny Lewis, I know I do!

  8. The Glass House is the thing I miss the most about living in Pomona. The city sucks otherwise, but they get some great shows.

    Actually, she’ll be in Sacramento tonight (as if anyone but me cares). Can’t wait for the show tonight, never seen her before and I’m really looking forward to it.

    Grossest outfit ever, Jenny Lewis. Just really horrendo, even before I made it to the camel toe shots. If Indiana Jones and Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman, had a child, she would wear this awful outfit.

  11. Yes, Jenny rocks the camel toe like a star…and rips off neil Young songs.
