There's ‘Nothing Better’ than Jenny Lewis and Death Cab for Cutie at the Masonic

Staff Pick


Jenny Lewis. - AUTUMN DEWILDE.
  • Autumn Dewilde.
  • Jenny Lewis.

Don’t @ us but the Postal Service’s 2003 record Give Up still fucking slaps. Though the collaborative side project between Death Cab for Cutie’s Ben Gibbard and Rilo Kiley’s Jenny Lewis produced only one record, both Gibbard and Lewis continue to push themselves to evolve — and preserve — what we’ve come to recognize as that early 2000s “indie” sound.

The tour invites Lewis, who is supporting her celebrated fourth solo record On the Line, which was released earlier this year, and DCFC will back 2018’s Thank You for Today. Lewis will return to town to headline the Michigan Theater in Ann Arbor on Sept. 18.

Death Cab for Cutie with Jenny Lewis will perform at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, June 18, at the Masonic Temple; 500 Temple St., Detroit; 313-832-7100; Tickets are $35+.
