Tonight Jenny Lewis and the Watson Twins played the Angel Orensanz Foundation on the Lower East Side of NYC, and thanks to Nora, I got to go. The venue, which was originally built for use as a synagogue, had a beautiful, majestic feel–making it the spot to showcase the pretty song-styling talents of J.Lew.
M.Ward opened the show and brought on both Jim James (of My Morning Jacket) and Conor “Bright Eyes” Oberst to help him with some songs. During Jenny’s set, her boyfriend Johnathan Rice played guitar and she brought Matt Ward back on stage to sing with her.
