The headliners of the West Rocks party was Juliette Lewis with her new band the New Romantiques (No more Juliette & The Licks I guess). I have had a crush on Ms. Lewis as long as I can remember and during CMJ I saw her outside of Arlo & Esme. I had like a 10 minute conversation with her about miracle fruit and other randomness. She hugged me a lot. I sort of fell in love. After her band played I gave her my card as she was leaving and she remembered me which was nice, but I didn’t get to talk to her at all. These lesbian super fans who were there got pictures with her and stuff and were screaming the whole time. And these gay guys yelled out “You made me straight!” She has quite the cross over audience. It was pretty rad. The show itself was nuts. She is super crazy and it was a lot of fun. She was an amazing singer which I am not sure I expected. I expected her to be a great front woman, and she was but as an encore she did a blues song and she fucking killed it. I was standing back stage with a few people when it happened and we were all just staring at each other like “Holy shit.” But yeah, the whole West Rocks show was a lot of fun and I feel like if I am ever in London when their party is going down I will hit that up.
