M. Ward is coming to SF!

After seeing M. Ward rock the Treasure Island Music Festival, I’ve been aching to see him play his own show.

And fortuitously at Slim’s this week, I noticed a show on their calendar for a band named She and Him…read on further to revel that the She is Zooey Deschanel (Elf, Almost Famous, Hitchhiker’s Guide) and the Him is M. Ward.  I quickly rushed up to the ticket booth and snatched up a couple.

I can’t wait!
