She & Him Plot Few U.S. Gigs

Critical Mass

by William Goodman

Who: The brand new project from folky singer/songwriter M. Ward and actress Zooey Deschanel, a peculiar duo creating an blend of pensive, '60s-style chamber pop.

What: Three bi-coastal dates in support of debut album, She & Him: Volume One. Fans in New York City, Los Angeles, and San Francisco will be treated to the duo's performance.

Should I go: Sure. If you're a devout fan of She & Him, the spring shows offer a rare chance to catch the duo, which has yet to play a significant number of gigs -- and our SF correspondent totally loved their debut at Noise Pop last month. Considering the web hype, and the amount of spilled ink at this early stage of the project's career, tickets will go fast -- don't miss out!

And for fans in the rest of the country unable to make one of She & Him's gigs, tune into Late Night With Conan O'Brien April 22 to catch the band playing live on TV.

She & Him tour dates:

4/21, New York, NY (Hiro Ballroom)4/29, Los Angeles, CA (Vista Theater)5/18, San Francisco, CA (Oysterfest)
