jeffrey lewis tries out a new song

It was about communism, but he'd only written the beginning, that didn't stop it being great (especially the picture of Karl Marx) shortly after that he decided the venue wasn't right for doing the flip-pad videos, which was a shame.

He seemed kind of nervous and distressed; anxiously sang a long, long song about New York punk. About halfway through it it occurred to me that if it'd been about British punk it would have been long over by now (and probably just been someone yelling FUCK FUCK FUCK a lot) ... but there was a fantastic song about an encounter on the subway that just got madder and madder ... and plenty of the repetitive shout-and-bounce-alongs that the off-their-faces kids really seemed to like (mind you, they also tried to sing along to the sweet and soulful encore).

Oh, and Misty's Big Adventure (supporting) were bloody brilliant.
