Jenny Lewis Forms New Band NAF (Nice As Fuck) With Members Of Au Revoir Simone, The Like

Jenny Lewis is so good, so the news that she’s forming a new band is also so good. Brooklyn Vegan points out that Nice As Fuck — a new band featuring Lewis, Au Revoir Simone’s Erika Forster, and the Like’s Tennessee Thomas — played their first gig at a Bernie Sanders benefit in New York last night. Forster and Thomas are also part of Strokes bassist Nikolai Fraiture’s band Summer Moon.) The trio will open for M. Ward’s East Coast dates this spring:

04/29 Saxapahaw, NC @ Haw River Ballroom
04/30 Charlottesville, VA @ Jefferson Theater
05/01 Washington, DC @ 9:30 Club
05/02 Philadelphia, PA @ Union Transfer
05/04 New York, NY @ Webster Hall
05/06 Portland, ME @ Port City Music Hall
05/07 Boston, MA @ Royale

Here’s extremely brief footage of NAF’s debut performance:

Time to cue up The Voyager in anticipation — or More Adventurous if that’s more your speed.
