J. Lew 

Jenny Lewis is the rare performer whose personal artistic stamp overshadows the increasingly varied forms and genres to which she applies it. A former child star in TV and film — that's her chewing Shelley Long's scenery in the 1989 kiddie-romp Troop Beverly Hills — Lewis, now 33, made a substantially bigger splash with her music, which has already spanned enough styles and moods to fill a lengthy career. She's the subliminal female harmonizer on the Postal Service's sublime 2003 electro-pop debut, Give Up; the brassy lead singer on the L.A. rock band Rilo Kiley's four LPs; and, of course, the throwback-soul and alt-country crooner on the two albums released under her own name. Her latest is 2008's Acid Tongue (Warner Bros.). Opening are the Cincinnati-cum-Austin rockers Heartless Bastards, whose February offering The Mountain (Fat Possum) sounds sprung from the wilds, wielding a chainsaw six-string and the scruffy, full-moon howls of chafed-raw main draw Erika Wennerstrom. Tickets $20.
