It's been very difficult to book, but I've finally got a European tour put together in June, at least most of it...
I don't know why it never gets much easier! I've been emailing ten zillion different clubs every day for weeks and months, trying to find new clubs, figuring out which old clubs have closed, which promoters have moved or retired, there are so many places that never respond to emails!
It's partially my fault for starting the tour booking only 3 months ahead of time, Seth Faergolzia tells me that he does his Europe tour-booking 6 months ahead of time and it's much easier. But it's hard for me to plan so far ahead! Luckily I have Sibsi in Germany helping find shows, and a lot of other people whom I've known for many years, who can also help.
SO here is what I have now!

Jeffrey Lewis & The Jrams EUROPE tour in JUNE 2015

Fri June 5 - ? Oslo ? (not sure yet)

Sat June 6 - Kleinreifling, Austria - Seewiesenfest

Hi Jeff, are you coming to Berlin sometime this year? If you can stay that long after your tour, how about http://www.downbytheriver-berlin.de?

The June tour is all booked!
Except at the very end... I'm trying to add a solo acoustic show in Berlin, after my bandmates head back to NYC.
Maybe my solo acoustic thing in Berlin will be June 26, or maybe it will be at Down By the River fest the next week. Probably makes more sense for it to be June 26. Anyway, I'll figure that out soon I hope.
In the meantime, here's all of the full-band dates, all confirmed at last!

I honestly don't know how you do it, that is such an incredible amount of time to be away from home and in random places you don't know...my nightmare. What if I couldn't understand or got stuck and couldn't ask for help? What if they didn't have food I could bring myself to eat? What would happen to my house if it wasn't cleaned every day? So much anxiety, you are braver than me.

Well, usually my tour anxieties are like "what if the rental car place won't let me pick up the rental car because I only have a US debit card, and no credit card?" or "what if the value of the euro drops even lower and when the tour is done the euros that we made won't be worth enough to cover the costs of the travel?" or "what if the box of comic books that I shipped ahead to Holland gets lost or damaged in the mail or it doesn't arrive in time?" There are many stresses of tour! But I'm not worried about my apartment being clean back at home... it's never very clean even w hen I'm home anyway! And being away from home is sort of like not having all the responsibilities of home... I don't have to think about cleaning or buying toilet paper or dealing with any of that home-stuff, for the whole time I'm away! So in some ways life on tour is easier...

They are genuine fears and I now think you're even braver! I didn't realise you had to earn a certain amount of money to break even. Maybe you need to re-adjust your prices to reflect the poor euro. I will try to buy more things next time I see you.
Don't tell me your flat isn't clean, I'll turn up in the morning with my dusters and not leave until it sparkles! I can't deal with the idea of mess or dirt that people live in.

Ahhh I'm so excited for the tour! I'm going back to NL on sunday evening and monday I'll drive all the way north to Groningen again to visit Miriam and we'll go to your show together Smile That's the Miriam I was traveling the US with 3 years ago and stayed over at your place with!

By the way, in case you need a place to stay, we'll probably drive back at night again to Ede, which is in the center of NL and a lot farther south (= in the direction of Aachen) than Groningen! Just lemme know Smile

I'm hoping for another UK tour. I think I've seen Jeffrey on tour for every one of his new albums, all in different venues. I was disappointed to miss him in Dundee last year as I was on holiday at the time.
Here's a question, for those who have seen Jeffrey Lewis multiple times, what's everyone's favourite place they've seen him? I was delighted to see him play the St Andrews student union as I live a 5 minute walk away from there and they rarely put any live music on there whatsoever. I think my favourite time though was in a very small pub in Glasgow, cost about £2 entry on the door and was just after the release of his second album. I think he was carrying around his recently cut off ponytail at the time! I really regret not buying all the cool pre-Fuff comics that he had on sale then as I haven't seen them anywhere since!

I saw three shows so far: one in Marseille in 2012, one in Metz in 2014 and one in Luxembourg in 2014. The one in Luxembourg was special for me because it was in my hometown. They were all great, but I think if I had to pick a favourite one, it would be Marseille 2012. It was in a small bar/club called "La Machine à Coudre" (The sowing machine), which was packed. The crowd was really great, and dancing to a lot of the songs. This was also back when Jeffrey was playing with The Junkyard, which was maybe a bit "punkier" than the Jrams. When he did the low budget documentary about The French Revolution, the crowd absolutely loved it. At the end, they had turned the lights back on and Jack was motioning to people that this was indeed the end of the show, but the people still wanted to hear more, so Jeffrey did the Mosquito rap while simultaneously "tearing down" the stage, he even handed the little keyboard to a random person in the first row to keep "playing" while he rapped.

It was just a great venue and crowd. Metz was actually in the basement of an old monastery, which was also nice, unfortunately the turnout wasn't so great that night. Moonface also played that night, I quite liked him as well.
