The event creator says
With Best Exes, and Zombie Jesus & the Chocolate Sunshine Band! It's the Detroit return of Jeffrey Lewis & the Jrams (NYC, Rough Trade Records)! $8 cover. A night of amazing music (and comic books)!

Combining folk warmth with garage noise, like if Woody Guthrie fronted Sonic Youth, Jeffrey Lewis began recording cassettes of his songs in New York City. Some of these found their way to Rough Trade in London (the indie label known for the Smiths, the Fall, the Strokes, Jonathan Richman, Belle & Sebastian, TV Personalities, etc); Jeffrey has released six acclaimed albums on Rough Trade and currently tours the world as Jeffrey Lewis & the Jrams (in addition to making comic books).
