We've been fans of Jenny Lewis for a long time, ever since her days in The Wizard. No, but seriously this girl has been busy making some great music over the past few years. In addition to being in Rilo Kiley, she's recorded with The Postal Service, Bright Eyes, and even put out an album with the Watson twins.
A documentary entitled "Welcome to Van Nuys" is set for release in the near future and records the behind-the-scenes making of her latest solo album Acid Tongue.
[Purchase Acid Tongue via iTunes]
In April, she returns to the U.S. to play a bunch of shows over the Summer, including dates at Coachella and Bonnaroo. On June 22nd, she'll be coming back to Stubb's here in Austin, with support from Heartless Bastards. Tickets for Austinites go on sale this Saturday (4/4) at 10AM. However, if you must buy your tickets now, most of the venues (including Austin for $17) have a pre-sale, already going on.
