After three stunning performances at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel on June 3rd, The Shoe is embarking on the international Thompson Hotels X The Shoe Takeover Tour. Known for their improvisational style and ability to fit their entire live setup in the trunk of a Fiat, The Shoe, duo of multi-talented Jena Malone (Donnie Darko, Hunger Games) and Lem Jay Ignacio are ready for their musical sojourn.
The critical success of The Shoe’s debut LP, I’m Okay, is highlighted by the film for track “His Gorgeousness,” directed by celebrated artist Aliya Naumoff. The film, premiered by NOWNESS, follows Jena on a surreal romp in the woods.
