We’re pleased to be bringing Jeffrey Lewis & The Voltage to the YES Basement!

Jeffrey Lewis & The Voltage have more or less perfected a scuzzy and urban style of indie-folk – a 21st Century mash-up of Pete Seeger, R. Crumb and Sonic Youth. A born and raised New Yorker, Lewis has been hard at work in the underground music and art world since the turn of the century – touring throughout the world and releasing eight acclaimed albums on the record labels Rough Trade and Don Giovanni. He is also a widely respected comics artist who self-publishes a comic book series called Statics.

On stage Lewis is backed by his band the Voltage, including longtime collaborators Brent Cole (drums) and Mem Pahl (bass), as well as recent addition Mallory Feuer (violin and keys).

The spectacular full-length Jeffrey Lewis & The Voltage album Bad Wiring was recorded in Nashville, TN with producer Roger Moutenot (Yo La Tengo) and was released in November 2019.

Local support comes from Oort Clod. Oort Clod are a theoretical extended shell of of icey material. Their last EP was released by Alphaville Records. They have been likened to Flying Nun bands and celebrated for their on-stage antics like playing the songs, not playing songs in between the songs, and asking each other what song they’re going to play next while simultaneously drinking beer (watch out for spit if you’re on the front row). The band openly admit that they are big fans of Jeffrey Lewis and feel like competition winners.
