The Big Tweet: Houston Sounds Off on Jenny Lewis Guitarist's Scolding

Although Rocks Off agrees with a commenter from our review that people really need to STFU when they go to concerts, especially if the music is intimate and acoustic - if you want to talk at Warehouse Live, folks, Lucky's Pub is right next door - Jenny Lewis' rhythm guitarist Johnathan Rice really stirred up a hornet's nest Wednesday night when he pointed out that Lewis' Austin and Dallas audiences did not feel the a similar need to converse during her set. It's not like Houston has any kind of chip on its shoulder about those two cities or anything. Here's a brief selection of the Tweets that were flying fast and furious during and after the show. As always, please follow Rocks Off at We promise to follow you back. chalupamecrazy: "@OfficialAudrina im kinda sad you disrespected jenny lewis by using her music for a freakin burger commercial." xy22y: "@da7id Jenny Lewis was great. Controversy when she stopped during her acoustic set because the crowd was chatty. @skyl3r @lablakely" astromark: "'@clickwindrepeat @groovehouse @thehza Better tact would be for Jenny Lewis to say, "Boy you guys are loud, but at least you aren't Detroit!" Zharleen: "Just woke up. First thought? Jenny Lewis was next to me last night singing 'Acid Tongue.'" theredshift: "Really enjoyed the Heartless Bastards/Jenny Lewis show last night, even though Jenny told the crowd to shut up." amneZEEac: "I MET JENNY FUCKING LEWIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" clickwindrepeat: "So the big news from the Jenny Lewis show yesterday is that she's human, not a china doll.
