She's acted in Christmas Vacation, Cape Fear, and Natural Born Killers. She started Juliette and the Licks, which disbanded this year, and now she's back on the music scene with Juliette Lewis & The New Romantics. Unlike many actors-turned musicians, Juliette Lewis holds her own onstage, bringing growling vocal energy to the down-and-dirty rock styling of her backing band. She's beginning this tour with the Pretenders and Cat Power, but they don't seem to be on the ticket for this show, making it only slightly less awesome. Lewis's next album, Terra Incognita, is scheduled to hit September 1. Tickets for her Culture Room show go on sale this Friday for $14.99 through Ticketmaster. Hit the jump to see Juliette in action.
