Jenny and Johnny
The lovechild of musicians Jenny Lewis and Jonathan Rice, dubbed Jenny and Johnny, will kick off their national tour today in Northern California. The couple’s tour begins in Santa Cruz at the Rio Theater with Ganglians and Farmer Dave Scher, then comes to the Great American for two nights thanks to Folk Yeah. Both nights also include great local acts:

9/3: Great American Music Hall with Farmer Dave Scher, Sonny & the Sunsets
9/4: Great American Music Hall with Famer Dave Scher, Ganglians

We caught a Farmer Dave Scher show a few months ago; read the review here.

Jenny and Johnny – “Scissor Runner”

Sonny & the Sunsets – “Too Young to Burn”

Ganglians – “Hair (from Daytrotter)”
