AUTUMN DE WILDE
  • Autumn de Wilde

How do we love thee, Jenny Lewis? Let us count the ways.

For one, the babely 43-year-old has been making music that has made our hearts swell and burst since her time in the early aughts indie fave band Rilo Kiley. Secondly, she doesn’t hold back, as evidenced by Lewis’ solo work, which spans intimate mountain folk (Rabbit Fur Coat, 2006), seductive and emotional travelogues (Acid Tongue, 2008), Neil Young-inspired pop (The Voyager, 2014), and shimmering raw diarial life reflections via this year’s On the Line (on which she tackles the complexities of a parent-child relationship through the death of her estranged mother). And how can we forget her iconic backing vocals on the Postal Service’s only record, and perhaps the most peak indie moment ever documented in music history, Give Up? L.A.-based identical twin duo the Watson Twins is also on the bill.

Event begins at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 18, at the Michigan Theater; 603 E. Liberty St., Ann Arbor; 734-668-8397; michtheater.org. Tickets are $37.50.
