UPDATE: Bad news, hipsters. Jenny Lewis announced the cancellation of a bunch of a West Coast tour dates — including the Visalia show. More info here. Bummer.

ORIGINAL POST, 9/12: Jenny Lewis — the indie rock singer who’s fronted Rilo Kiley, released solo albums and even done some acting — will make a tour stop at Visalia on Oct. 25.

She’ll play an all-ages concert on Oct. 25 at the College of Sequoias theater, which holds about 400 people. Tickets cost $15 and go on sale today at noon via Ticketweb.

Lewis visits the Valley after playing the annual Bridge School Benefit concert in the Bay Area a few days earlier.

An interesting wrinkle in the Lewis-in-the-Valley story that many might not know: Her father, Eddie Gordon, lived in Fresno for many years. He was a harmonica player who performed around town, often with Steve Ono. Eventually, Gordon was diagnosed with cancer and moved to be closer to family. He passed away last year.

My 2 year old son & I enjoy singing her song from (of all things) Disney’s “Bolt” together. Interesting voice, great talent.

Stephen says:

Eddie Gordon, creator of the ‘Sanford and Son’ theme. True talent.

She’s terrific…not my cup of tea, but her talent is amazing.

Michael says:
