An associate of indie darlings the Moldy Peaches, singer-songwriter Jeffrey Lewis, who plays Kingston on Friday, March 15, shares much of that duo’s bizarre anti-folk aesthetic. Raised by beatnik parents in New York, he makes lo-fi sounds that also reference the city’s irreverent folk-based artists of the past, such as the Fugs, the Godz, and David Peel and the Lower East Side. In 2008 Lewis released 12 Crass Songs, an all-acoustic tribute to the titular English anarcho-punk act. Also a highly acclaimed comic book artist, Lewis frequently accompanies his performances with projections of his amusing art—which he’ll hopefully do for this show at BSP Lounge.

Also on the bill are the Brooklyn What, What Moon Things, and Adir L.C. Tickets are $6. For more information, call (845) 481-5158 or visit www.bsplounge.com.
