words + photos by Joe Cortez

Singer/songwriter Brett Newski is a difficult man to pin down-literally. After spending time touring Southeast Asia and later South Africa and Europe, the mid-west native finds himself back home in the US for a tour that found him opening for Violent Femmes last month and will take him across the east coast starting December 1st for a brief string of dates in support of his latest release, "Land Air Sea Garage" (available now via

As part of his tour in support of the alt-rock mainstays, Newski opened for the Femmes at Pomona's Fox Theater on Friday night, October 21st. Combining just the right amount of wit and irreverence to his earnest talents as a lyricist and composer, Newski charmed the crowd and regaled with stories of his travels and adventurous life.
