Jeffrey Lewis & Los Bolts with special guests Alexander Bradshaw Band & Vicious Fishes electrifies the Sacred Root Kava Lounge with an all age show Friday, May 17! The show starts at 8pm with an $8 cover.

Jeffrey Lewis & Los Bolts (NYC) play an abnormally satisfying style of scuzzy urban indie-rock-folk, like a 21st Century mash-up of Sonic Youth, Pete Seeger and R. Crumb. Born and raised New Yorker Jeffrey has pursued a relentless touring schedule around the world since 2002, as well as playing as the opening act for bands like the Mountain Goats, Daniel Johnston, Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks, Dinosaur Jr, The Fall, Dr. Dog, Pulp, Roky Erickson, The Vaselines, and most recently a USA tour supporting Hobo Johnson at 2,000-capacity venues. Jeffrey has released seven critically acclaimed albums on Rough Trade Records, in addition to occasional self-releases and projects on other labels (like K Records or Don Giovanni), and Jeffrey continues to self-publish his art and writing in an ongoing underground comic book series called Fuff. Current Los Bolts bandmates include Brent (Moldy Peaches) Cole on drums and Mem (Cat Tatt) Pahl on bass and keys. Jeffrey Lewis & Los Bolts have recorded a brand new full-length album in Nashville with producer Roger Moutenot (Yo La Tengo), with title and release date tba!

It’s very exciting to be able to tell you that Jeffrey Lewis & Los Bolts will be making a rare visit to Ithaca on Friday May 17. Lewis is one of The Cool Cat Club’s all-time favorite songwriters and performers and previous shows have always been such an evening of sheer joy.
It’s hard to know where to begin when describing New York born and based Jeffrey Lewis’s creative activities. As a musician and songwriter he has been active for such a long time, both solo and with an array of bands, performing and recording with Los Bolts since 2015. In addition to this Jeffrey Lewis both writes and illustrates graphic novels, having published his comic book, Fuff, since 2004 and incorporates artwork and storytelling into his live sets to magical effect.
In addition to writing, performing and recording under his own name, Jeffrey Lewis also collaborates with Peter Stampfel of 60s legends The Holy Modal Rounders and they released their second album, "Hey, Hey it’s… The Jeffrey Lewis and Peter Stampfel Band," in 2013. A third album and a new album with Los Bolts are both in the pipeline.
Jeffrey Lewis has attracted a great deal of praise from contemporaries such as Jarvis Cocker (Pulp), Dave Berman (Silver Jews), Paul Banks (Interpol) and Will Oldham. The latter said of Lewis, "Really great and impressive and inspiring and exciting... There's not a lot of people that can tell a story and use language like that in music."
The Jeffrey Lewis & Los Bolts 2015 album, Manhattan, is a work of utter genius, an original take on life in the Big Apple by that rare individual, a genuine artist still living in the city despite increasing gentrification and is a lyrical, beautiful and sublime record.
Live, Jeffrey Lewis & Los Bolts (Brent and Mem) are an absolute blast and with such an impressive back catalogue who knows where they might take the audience at any given time. Rest assured though, it will be a genuinely special experience. - Beat Generator
