Jenny Lewis' band begs for peace in first network TV performance
The Jenny Lewis-fronted outfit sang 'Door' on 'The Late Show' Monday
Jenny Lewis is no stranger to TV: The musician got her start in the entertainment business by appearing on shows like The Golden Girls, and has since performed on late-night shows as a solo act as well as with Rilo Kiley and the Postal Service. But she reached a new small screen milestone Monday when her new band, Nice as F—, made its network TV debut on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.
The band, also featuring Au Revoir Simone’s Erika Forster and The Like’s Tennessee Thomas, performed first single “Door” on the show, where they also launched into a shortened rendition of “Guns,” a song including lyrics like, “I don’t wanna be afraid, put your guns away.”
The rest of their set was similarly politically charged: Everyone on stage wore shirts reading “Give a damn,” and the set was decorated with a glowing peace sign.
See the performance above. Nice as F—‘s self-titled album is out now.
