We ate across the street at Rock Pizza/. Just make sure you allow at least an hour for dinning. We parked at the Olympic Garage (1 block south of the 5th ave). Great place to park. A lot of people dressed up and a lot of people were very casual.

The band is really fun to watch live. My girlfriend compared Zooey to a hyperactive kindergartener - she kept jumping up and down. But Zooey's vocals are easily lost amid the instruments - her distinctive voice was almost wasted. I hope it was...continued

What a great show! The band was full of energy, Zooey and Matt were great, and the seats were awesome. We were up on the balcony, center stage, but we felt like we were in the first floor. 5th Ave is a nice venue, but I got the feeling that...continued

Quotes & Highlights

Hear She & Him at their website.
“Maybe Volume One is just a sweet little folk record—a tiny, flawless diamond. Or maybe it’s a pristine distillation of harmony and craft.” -Paste
“What makes Volume Two so distinctive isn’t just the sound of her voice, the quality of her songwriting, or even the resourcefulness of his arrangements, but their joint insistence that these old sounds have as much to say nowadays as they ever did.” -pitchfork.com

Description

She & Him make music for an eternal springtime, when the temperature is warm enough to go riding with the top (or at least the windows) rolled down and the radio turned up. They occupy an alternate universe where the saddest of songs feel as warm as sun showers; the rain may be coming down, but somewhere nearby, everything looks bright. What began as a fascinating, no-strings attached collaboration on 2008’s Volume One has evolved into a bona fide, touring band, and She & Him are here to stay.

Zooey Deschanel and Matt Ward are as comfortable and complementary a musical pair as Les Paul and Mary Ford; hearing them again on Volume Two feels like getting together with two old friends. This time, the harmonies have grown more angelically layered, the string arrangements more dramatic, the songwriting even sharper and more confident. But, as with Volume One, the prevailing mood is bittersweet, dreamy, and romantic.
