This evening’s performance marked my third time seeing Lewis live. I saw her for the first time in Lee’s Palace in 2005, supporting the You’re Speaking My Language album (her second release with The Licks). At that show, I went in as someone curious to see ‘the Hollywood starlet on stage’. I left Lee’s that night with the album in my hand, and a new understanding of Lewis and her commitment to rock and roll. This isn’t something she’s doing to pass the time. Lewis isn’t making a Bruno album like Bruce Willis, or levying a train-wreck of pseudo-rock like Joaquin Phoenix… No, Lewis is fully immersed in her craft.
