Concert Review – Jesse Lacey @ The Roxy
08/07/08 at 05:31 PM by Jonathan Bautts
Jesse Lacey
w/ Kevin Devine & Brian Bonz

The Roxy
Hollywood, CA
July 21, 2008


Over the past eight years Brand New has produced three acclaimed albums and amassed a devout following. As a token of appreciation, frontman Jesse Lacey recently embarked on a short solo tour that included a stop in Los Angeles.

While Brand New has progressed musically with each record, acoustic guitar-driven songs have always remained intact and were represented from the old (“Soco Amaretto Lime”) to the new (“Coca-Cola”). Lacey also delivered several Brand New staples, including “Jude Law,” a country-folk version of “Jesus” and an impressive rendition of “Degausser,” while throwing in some Modest Mouse and Neutral Milk Hotel covers.

Openers Kevin Devine and Brian Bonz were good at setting the tone early on, and the three were constantly onstage helping each other out. However, while Devine’s set was an effective blend of politically charged folk, the night clearly belonged to Lacey, proving a rare treat for Brand New fans.
