As the New York alternative icon hits Liverpool, Getintothis’ David Hall has the scoop on what is sure to be a career-spanning set at Buyers Club.

The eleventh installment of Howl at the Moon brings New York writer, artist and musician to Merseyside, and kicks off a full UK tour for Jeffrey Lewis and Los Bolts‘ this month.

The slacker pioneer has been churning out lo-fi garage rock in the fine tradition of fellow east-coaster Sebadoh, with the gritty but gaudy sunshine aesthetic of Californian counterparts Pavement and Mellow Gold-era Beck.

A leading artist of the anti-folk movement emerging from the New York scene in 2001, along with Moldy Peaches and a host of others, Jeffrey Lewis has released seven albums in a variety of guises through the legendary Rough Trade label, plus multiple EPs, singles and side-projects.

Last year’s Manhattan album showcased Jeffrey Lewis‘ trademark razor-sharp wit and lo-fi pop sensibility, taking cues from outsider icon like Daniel Johnson.

Support comes from Liverpool garage crew Big Safari, and also Bad Meds, featuring former members of scouse favourites Hot Club de Paris.
