English Rain Sheffield in association with Violet Gang Presents Jeffrey Lewis & The Voltage with support from Sadly Dan and I Set The Sea On Fire at Picture House Social on the 17th September 2019. // 18+ Event // £12 ADV // £15 OTDJeffrey Lewis & The Voltage (NYC) play a brilliant style of scuzzy urban indie-rock-folk, like a 21st Century mash-up of Sonic Youth, Pete Seeger and R. Crumb. Born and raised New Yorker Jeffrey has pursued a relentless touring schedule around the world ever since 2002, as well as playing as the opening act for bands like the Mountain Goats, Daniel Johnston, Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks, Dinosaur Jr, The Fall, Dr. Dog, Pulp, Roky Erickson, The Vaselines, and more. Jeffrey has released eight critically acclaimed albums on Rough Trade Records and Don Giovanni Records, and Jeffrey continues to self-publish his art and writing in an ongoing underground comic book series called Fuff. Current bandmates the Voltage are Brent (Moldy Peaches) Cole on drums and Mem (Cat Tatt) Pahl on bass and keys. Actually it’s the same band that’s been billed as Jeffrey Lewis & Los Bolts for the past three years, but Jeffrey is continuing his tradition of changing the band name with each new release… The spectacular new full-length album “Jeffrey Lewis & The Voltage: Bad Wiring” was recorded in Nashville with producer Roger Moutenot (Yo La Tengo), and will be released November 1, 2019, on Moshi Moshi Records in UK/Europe and Don Giovanni Records in the USA.
RIYL: Modern Lovers, Yo La Tengo, Violent Femmes, Daniel Johnston
