Between acclaimed acting gigs in Into the Wild, Saved!, and Donnie Darko, indie goddess Jena Malone has taken on a new role — rock chick. This friend of Fancast leads a new band named Shoe, and she tells us they’ll be playing a super secret show in NYC on June 27, 28th and 29th (well, not so secret anymore!). Hey, just for fun, Fancast is giving away a few copies of the band’s new CD, At Lem Jay’s Garage – and Jena signed ‘em.
You probably have two questions. 1) How do you get one of these signed CDs? (Answer: Write in and ask for it. We only have three or four copies, so do it fast.) 2) How do you get to Jena’s gig? (Answer: You have to follow the special directions she has personally created leading to each event, which you’ll find after the jump.)
Shoe info:The band consists of Jena (vocals) and Lem Jay Ignacio (piano) and published her album under their own label, There was an Old Woman Records. You can buy the album here. Check out their MySpace page HERE.
