Video: Black Joe Lewis & the Honeybears “I'm Broke”

Still telling 'em what his name is.

The hardest working man in the seafood business, Austin's Black Joe Lewis & the Honeybears has had one hell of a year thus far thanks to the release of group's soulful Lost Highway debut, Tell 'Em What Your Name Is . Black Joe Lewis is currently on 20-date tour with the New York Dolls, including a stop at Emo's on Saturday. Here's the video “I'm Broke,” which was directed by Daniel Gibbs and nods equally to Stevie Wonders' Songs in the Key of Life and Seventies spy flicks.
