I just got back from seeing Rilo Kiley! They are simply amazing and Jenny Lewis is so cute! The show was really well done, though at times it was hard to hear all of the incredible instrument sounds that come through on their albums. If you’ve never heard Rilo Kiley before, I highly recommend picking up their album “The Execution Of All Things” ASAP. They have other albums, but that is the best place to start. Riley Kiley’s band members play in lots of other great groups: Jenny Lewis sang for The Postal Service, Jason Boesel recorded with Bright Eyes, and Blake Sennett is the lead singer for The Elected.
A band called “Now Its Overhead” opened for Rilo Kiley, and they were pretty excellent too. I’ve never heard of them before tonight, so it was a pleasant surprise.
