Jenny Lewis @ The Palace, St. Paul

Jenny Lewis performs at The Palace St. Paul on March 8, 2024.

Similar to her show at The Met last July, beloved singer-songwriter Jenny Lewis put on a spectacular performance in St. Paul last Friday.

Instead of the rotating few Rilo Kiley songs she had been playing on previous legs of the Joy’All Ball Tour, Jenny pleasantly surprised us by including tracks from her incredible debut solo record, Rabbit Fur Coat.

A highlight of the show was during the infamously long The Next Messiah, a song for which she apologized before playing – “This is 8 minutes of your life you will never get back.” There was nothing to apologize for, however, as she and Jess Nolan (keyboard) performed an amazing duet full of passion and incredible vocals on both ends.

Jenny seemed to be in high spirits that night, as she spoke about how she loves the Twin Cities. It seems the cities love her too – she even has a star dedicated to her at the main venue, First Avenue, which I was lucky enough to visit the next day. All in all, my third time seeing Jenny live proves she never disappoints. Make sure you catch her playing in Harrisburg in June!
