“I just like how he’s always leaning. Against stuff. He leans great.”

So, last night I went to a show by Jenny Lewis and the Watson Twins with my friend Belle. It was a good show — very June Carter Cash at the Grand Ole Opry. Jenny has a beautiful voice and has become quite the showwoman. We saw her at this weird venue in Alexandria, Va. called the Birchmere which has a dance floor and stage in the middle of a giant room and is surrounded by dining tables where people are shoveling chicken wings down their gullets.

In any case, what does this have to do with TV? I’ll tell you what.

One of the opening acts was this Scottish guy named Jonathan Rice who is actually Jenny’s boyfriend. He wore a Western shirt, some tight, tight black pants, and an expression that looked frightened and bewildered even when he was trying to joke around.

At first, I thought he looked like Bright Eyes (aka Connor Oberst). But, after giving it some more thought, I realized he reminded me of none other than Jordan Catalano of “My So-Called Life.”

You can see it, right? The pouty lips. The big, dewy eyes. Those tangled, devil-may-care tresses. I mean, if Jordan took off that circa-1994 flannel you’d basically have the same person.

    YES! I said this and my coshowgoer totally didn’t agree with me. I am vindicated. We agreed he also looked like Michael Pitt, from Dawson’s Creek/Last Days/Murder by Numbers/Hedwig (which is to say, so baby-faced he’s creepy). J-Lew can do better.
