Win tickets to this showRare is the the actress who finds fame as a singer, but Jenny Lewis now lays claim to a stellar body of work that makes her former career merely a footnote. As the frontwoman of Rilo Kiley, Lewis isn't hurtin' for indie cred. That band's irresistible hooks are balanced by thoughtful lyrics and sunny instrumentation: hallmarks that also inform Lewis's debut 2006 solo album "Rabbit Fur Coat." Her second solo release "Acid Tongue" is the occasion for her current tour. Featuring guest spots from Elvis Costello, M.Ward, and a bevy of other collaborators, it's a bit more country and a bit more mellow a la early Rilo Kiley tunes.
