High-energy actress-turned-rocker Juliette Lewis will be hitting the legendary Fillmore at Irving Plaza Satruday night with opening bands American Bang and The Ettes!
Lewis is on tour in support of her fantastic new record, Terra Incognita, which she released with new band The New Romantiques September 1. Incognita is fierce yet fun, and has the same DIY spirit as early Clash and Sex Pistols records!
It's a show not to be missed!!

We already told you about our Mickey Rourke sighting at Max Azria, but who else was a curveball at the biggest fashion event of the year??
Here are photos from just a few people Poison Ivy didn't expect to see but did: Kara Dioguardi, Joan Rivers, Ron Jeremy and Ivana Trump!!
Ok, ok, Joan Rivers isn't that unusual at Fashion Week...
But we had to show you how unusual her face looks!
We know Azria best for creating international brand BCBG - a.k.a. where Poison Ivy bought every homecoming/prom/bat-mitzvah dress ever!
So when we were invited to hang out backstage at his New York Fashion Week show, you know we flipped out!!
I guess we weren't alone in our excitement, because tons of celebs showed up too, including Mickey Rourke (WTF), Lucy Liu, Leigh Lezark, Tinsley Mortimer and Today Show ladies Kathy Lee Giffard and Hoda Kotb!
Check out the pix we got above, and - you guessed it! - footage from the runway show, below!
These clothes speak for themselves!!

Here we spotted Rachel Bilson, Ugly Betty star Becki Newton, and The City's Olivia Palermo (in a fierce pantsuit)!
The fashions in the show were kinda bland for us, but judge it for yourselves in our video, below!
Don't say we never brought you back nothing nice!
Poison Ivy had a chance to go backstage before the fantastic runway show Tuesday morning, and spotted everyone from Kim Kardashian to Fran Drescher to The City's Erin Lucas to Kelly Rowland!!!
We also had a chance to chat with Real Housewife of New York Bethenny Frankel, who was covering the show for Access Hollywood.
"I made four fashion paux pas," Frankel said, when we asked how her interviewing skills were working out. "I sat in a celebrity's seat, I took clothes off the rack... Oy. Let's see if they invite me back."
Check out pix from other backstage moments above, and a clip of the runway show, below.

"Patrick Swayze passed away peacefully today with family at his side after facing the challenges of his illness for the last 20 months," his publicist said in a statement.
The actor, best known for his roles in Ghost, Dirty Dancing, and recent TV series The Beast, is succeeded by wife Lisa Niemi, his mother, two brothers and sister.
It wasn't easy to concentrate on the groundbreaking performances at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards Sunday night. We found ourselves either celebrating the life of Michael Jackson or wanting to beat the daylights out of Kanye West.
But, let's get back to the music, shall we?
In case you missed it, here are Poison Ivy's top two performances of the evening: a manic, blood-infused version of "Paparazzi" by Lady Gaga, and an acrobatic, nail-biting rendition of "Sober" by Pink.
"Michael Jackson was a human being, but he was a king," Madonna said, during her closing lines. "Long live the king."
Those sentiments were echoed throughout the night, and specifically a few minutes later, when sister Janet Jackson emerged with her own dance crew for a high-energy performance of "Scream" that synced with the music video of MJ dancing behind her.
The night also ended with Jackson in mind, as MTV left us with a two-minute preview for his "This is It" concert film, composed of footage from the tour that never happened.
Be sure to check it out if you missed it, above.
Not love, but like!!
Gwen Stefani poses with her models after the L.A.M.B. runway show Thursday in Bryant Park.
Plaid, lace and leather definitely have their place in fashion - we're just not sure if they can sustain an entire collection!
"F--- u Kanye. It's like you stepped on a kitten."-Katy Perry
"Kanye needs to chill. He freaks out every year. It ain't that deep man." -Adam Lambert
"I wish MTV let Pink knock out evil west." -Spencer Pratt
"Tator Tot, you handled yourself with Grace. Kanye, go grow some f-ing balls bitch! don't mess w/my lil sis!!" -Kellie Pickler
"Kanye West is the biggest piece of sh-- on earth. Quote me. My heart goes out to Taylor Swift. She is a sweet and talented girl and deserved her moment. She should know we all love her. Beyonce is a classy lady. I feel for her, too. It's not her fault at all, and her and Taylor did their thing. And douche bag got kicked out." -Pink
"At least we got to see the worst haircut since 1984 try to steal the spotlight from lovely Taylor Swift." -Kings of Leon's Nathan Followill
"Taylor swift, y'all. #TeamTaylor." -Paramore's Hayley Williams
Enjoy, once again, the extended trailer of New Moon that debuted at Sunday night's MTV Video Music Awards.
You can never have enough of a shirtless Rob Pattinson and Taylor Lautner!
Click above to watch Kanye West's inappropriate stage rush during Taylor Swift's acceptance speech for Best Female Video for "You Belong With Me."
"Taylor, I'm really happy for you, and I'm gonna let you finish," West began, "but Beyonce had one of the best videos of all time." West was of course referring to the video for "Single Ladies," which later won highest honors for Video of the Year.
But West wouldn't know that, because homeboy got kicked out!!!
Beyonce appeared horrified as the camera panned to her after West's outburst, and she later called Swift onstage during her Video of the Year acceptance to give her the moment she deserved.
"I remember being 17-years-old, up for my first MTV award with Destiny’s Child and it was one of the most exciting moments of my life," Beyonce said. "So I would like for Taylor to come out and have her moment."

Alessandra Ambrosio hit the Christian Siriano show we raved about earlier, while a very glowing Adriana Lima and Miranda Kerr greeted fans at the Midtown NYC store.
It's a tough job.... but someone's gotta do it!
We know you're promoting an indie flick, but was this really necessary??
Drew Barrymore abused a can of spraypaint before showing up to a free skate night at Bonaventure Skating Center in Farmington Hills, Michigan, to promote her new flick, Whip It, featuring Ellen Page.
Just trying to fit in, we suppose!
Even her models look miserable!
Bro Mark and sis Samantha expressed our sentiments exactly while spinning at her after-party.
Exotic, romantic silhouettes alternated with frayed, elegant dresses...
The show is about a writer (Schwartzman) who becomes a private detective and then chronicles his clients lives into his work! The story is loosely based on show creator Jonathan Ames' experiences, with Danson playing Schwartman's magazine editor and Zach Galifianakis jumping into the mix as his friend.
Can't be worse than True Blood!
Mena Suvari, Nicky Hilton and Shenae Grimes popped by the Alice + Olivia runway show Saturday at New York's Fashion Week - and they look as pleased as we were!!!
Check out this photo of the very textured, very feminine designs A + O is planning for Spring!
