Jenny Lewis (Plus A Welcome To Van Nuys Surprise Screening) @ The Glass House, Pomona 4/13/09

By admin / April 14, 2009

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.
