It is a pure coincidence that our next post after Diane Cluck is her sometime collaborator and fellow anti-folk alum Jeffrey Lewis. We spoke at length with Jeffrey after his entertaining performance at the first night of the Don Giovanni Records showcase at Music Hall of Williamsburg on Friday night. Speaking to Jeffrey is almost as entertaining as seeing him live, but we also learned that he was in fact at the Diane Cluck show on Tuesday. It is not a coincidence however that the two artists have chosen the same uncompromising career choices, Diane as a direct-to-fan artist and Jeffrey as a multi-talentend jack of all trades — songwriter, cartoonist, humorist and writer. The performance on Friday offered a forty-minute glimpse of these talents and was a thoroughly enjoyable set on many levels, offbeat (“Cult Boyfriend” streaming below), thoughtful (“Life”), educational (“Pocahontas”), and completely hilarious (“The Pigeon”, a yiddish LES spoof of Poe’s The Raven). We have had the luck to see Jeffrey several times, but inexplicably he’s never been on the site. We are happy to finally have him here, and hope there are more to come.

I recorded this set with acidjack from a prime location in this venue. I mixed the Sennheiser cards with a fine soundboard feed and the results are superb. Enjoy!
