    Jenny Lewis debuted her new supergroup NAF (Nice As Fuck) at Bern NY Bern, a Bernie Sanders benefit show held Sunday night at New York City’s Flesh Factory. Along with the Rilo Kiley frontwoman, the trio features Au Revoir Simone’s Erika Forster and The Like’s Tennessee Thomas.

    As their concert attire suggests, all three women are vocal supporters of Sanders’ presidential campaign, but that’s not the only reason this match seems, well, nice as fuck. Their musical projects have all hovered around the general realm of indie pop/rock in the past, this isn’t even the first band Forster and Thomas have played together in (earlier this year, they formed Summer Moon with Nikolai Fraiture of The Strokes).

    According to Brooklyn Vegan, NAF will continue to play shows opening for Lewis’ longtime friend M. Ward and tourmate M. Ward. Check out a short video from last night’s show below, and scroll down for a list of the band’s upcoming tour dates.
