Jenny Lewis brought her sold-out Joy'All Tour to Saxapahaw's Haw River Ballroom on a steamy Tuesday night.


 
After an entertaining opening set by Dean Johnson, Jenny Lewis hit the stage a little after 9:00 PM with her four-piece all-female band (Dean Johnson also had an all-female band!). She kicked off the night with "The Big Guns" from her debut album, Rabbit Fur Coat.


 
It had been five years since I last saw Jenny Lewis perform live, at the 2019 Hopscotch Music Festival. I can't say the same for others in the crowd; most of the front row was following her tour. I spoke with Ethan and Ken who had seen her Friday night in Harrisburg, PA; Sunday night in Richmond, VA; Tuesday night in Saxapaphaw; and were going to see her Wednesday night at The Orange Peel in Asheville, NC. Talk about dedicated fans!

 
Fans couldn't have asked for a better set list. From the first (and best, in my opinion) song she wrote as a solo artist, "Rise Up With Fists!!" to six tracks off her most recent album, Joy'All, every song you love by her was performed last night.


 
Before "Puppy And A Truck," Jenny's puppy, who also appears on the bass drum and the guitar picks, "called" the singer on the telephone that was hooked up to Jenny's keyboard. The puppy told a joke, which Jenny translated for us:
What is it so hot at a Grateful Dead concert?
Because none of the fans work!

 
Lewis ended the nigth with "Acid Tongue," which was dedicated to GWAR's Sawborg Destructo, who had provided back-up vocals for "Acid Tongue" the show before in Richmond.


 
There are only three dates left for the tour: Charleston, South Carolina on June 28th; Jacksonville, Florida on June 29th; and Birmingham, Alabama on the 30th. Catch her if you can!

      • Strange Carolinas started as a hobby for Chris Hocker who often dragged his family to offbeat detours on family vacations. Hocker decided to start photographing and writing about these roadside attractions and in June 2014, launched Strange Carolinas with a story on Myrtle Beach's KISS Coffeehouse. In addition to chronicling over 400 attractions across the Carolinas, Strange Carolinas has also become an impressive music blog.
