Jeffrey Lewis and Los Bolts, The Florists, Sass


Jeffrey Lewis and Los Bolts, The Florists, Sass

Jul 21st 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Eagles 34

Jeffrey Lewis & Los Bolts (NYC, Rough Trade Records), with The Florists, and Sass! At the Ernie Mattson Ballroom at Eagles Club 34 in Minneapolis... Be there or be skwaire... 


Jeffrey Lewis & Los Bolts play a crazy original mix of scuzzy urban indie-rock, literate lyrics and comic book punk, like a 21st century mash-up of Sonic Youth, Pete Seeger and R. Crumb; Jeffrey has toured as the opening act for bands like the Mountain Goats, Daniel Johnston, Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks, and the Vaselines, so you get the idea...
