The first time we ever saw the popular indie sweethearts, Jenny and Johnny was at the FILTER Culture Collide Festival back in October. I’ve always been a fan of Jenny Lewis and Rilo Kiley and I was excited about her latest act, Jenny and Johnny (with her beau, Johnathan Rice). As always, Lewis was adorable with that charming voice of hers, but Johnny, well Johnny was a douche. Not only was he bitching on stage about the sound and insulting the sound guys … um, he walked off. Yeah, the dude stormed off with his poser leather jacket that said “Johnny” on the back. Always make a good first impression right? Well Johnny made a horrible impression on us along with the entire crowd at Culture Collide. So yeah, when I heard Jenny and Johnny were opening for Bright Eyes at the Fox Theater Pomona, I still had a sour taste left in my mouth. Regardless, we love Jenny Lewis! And this show of theirs wasn’t bad at all. It was actually fun and totally engaging. I guess Johnny grew up a little.
