Antifolk Fest, February 16, 2010

Jeff Lewis: Jeff started off with a new was about trading time...essentially it was about how to be great, how to use the time you have to learn something new, unique....

He also did covers of three songs from the 1950s: "Endless Sleep" by Jody Reynolds and the Storm, The Fang, by Nervous Norvus, and a Tom Lehrer song about when we all die.

Another new one was a song about green sludge. Yes, it was about something called "Crongu" the best green sludge around. (I'm not really sure if that is how you spell "Crongu" by the way. Could be Krongu or Crongoo or Crongue etc.

Jeff also performed one of his documentary films, a new one about the fall of the Roman Empire.

As usual Jeff's set was rich with compelling and interesting material. It had at least three new pieces and three covers I'd never heard him play before. That's a lot of new material and a lot of ideas for someone who could coast a lot more on his established "hits" if he wanted to.

Unfortunately I had to leave before hearing The Everybody Knows. Man these shows go late.
