She’ll continue to shock the naysayers with her new Jenny and Johnny project and their debut I’m Having Fun Now, but what’s nerve-wracking is that Jonathan Rice (”Johnny”), her boyfriend and now full-time collaborator, seems poised for heartbreak.

Jenny and Johnny, the newly formed group from couple Jenny Lewis (of Rilo Kiley fame) and Johnathan Rice put on an informal giveaway and signing today at the Mollusk Surf Shop in the heart of Venice Beach in Los Angeles. Announced via the group’s Twitter account, there were minimal details available.
