Win Tix To See She & Him @ The Met Wednesday!

She & Him_Christmas


Zooey Deschanel — with her big baby blue doe-in-the-headlights, her kicky Bridgette Bardot ‘do, and her unsinkable cheerfulness — is like the impossibly cute, eternally quirky, thrift store retro-cool girlfriend every soon-to-be art school drop-out wanted to blow off the prom with. She’s one of those people that walk between the raindrops tittering over the same private joke she’s been cracking herself up with for years but tells to no one. M. Ward, with his George Shearing tea shades, his Cheshire grin of a voice, and his impeccable curation of shimmering mid-20th Century ephemera, is that art school drop out. He is also the Him to Deschanel’s She, as in She & Him, their beloved side hustle from otherwise thriving and respectable careers as an actress and indie-rocker, respectively. Since their inception in 2008, She & Him have issued three volumes of breezy folk-pop, a collection of standards and two albums of midcentury modern Christmas music. It is the latter they will be drawing from when they deck the halls with boughs of Buddy Holly at The Met on Wednesday December 4th. Just admit it, you wanna go.
