Tonight! Jenny Lewis vs. PJ Harvey, and the Vision Festival Begins




Fair-haired girl-next-door Jenny Lewis, the former child actress and Rilo Kiley heartthrob, plays the Music Hall of Williamsburg in support of her latest solo release, Acid Tongue, a sugary country album that’s found a place in entrenched Nashville.

Lewis goes head-to-head with black-goddess-of-charcoal-and-death Polly Jean Harvey, who headlines at the Beacon with producer/guitarist John Parish.

The Vision Festival begins its fourteenth season at the Abrons Arts Center, with performances by avant-garde jazz musicians Billy Bang and Douglas Ewart, along with poet Amiri Baraka.

The Gipsy Kings return to B.B. King’s. The flamenco superstars are best known in this country for their association with a child-molester named Jesus.
