BIG 3 MUSIC: Jeffry Lewis & Los Bolts

Live in JP on 11/24


Sat 11/24 Jeffrey Lewis & Los Bolts, Bad History Month, Request Freebird @Deep Thoughts JP 8pm All Ages $10

Are you into dry, often clever witticism accompanied by subtle yet driven guitar chords? How about with a punk twist? Then come out to Deep Thoughts JP for an intimate and enthralling performance by the wondrous Jeffrey Lewis and Los Bolts. This dude lays down some seriously viable verbiage. Listen carefully lest ye miss a single piece of his poppy, heartwarming word salads. Relatable, often funny, and driven by the dance inducing power pop of Los Bolts, Jeff Lewis’ unique brand of party folk grabs the attention of any listener.

Joining this basement ballet is Boston’s legendary Bad History Month. Discordant plucking and slowly swelling guitar musings bely the sophistication of BHM’s wry brand of weirdo rock poetry. Rounding out this already exceptional bill is the beautiful baritone of Request Freebird, whose blunt and direct lyrical approach, effortlessly intertwined with subtle chords, forms the basis of some truly haunting lullaby rock. Like a waking dream, this show promises to be both hypnotically captivating and profoundly comforting. Come join the fray.
