Clear your calendars, fans of talented singer-songwriters, for M. Ward’s March 15 concert at the DMA’s Horchow Museum. Ward was on Letterman last night, which you can see here. I’ve been a fan of Ward for years and years, ever since I saw a flier for his first album in the men’s room at the Gypsy Tea Room that described him as Tom Waits meets Elvis Costello. I guess that description is accurate enough, though he’s pretty much developed a signature style of his own by now: Americana-slash-folk-slash-old-timey-radio. His new cd, Hold Time, came out yesterday, and his project with Zooey Deschanel is recent (and awesome) enough to mention, too.
Update: A helpful, museum-employed FrontBurnervian passes along ticket info:Â Tickets are $20 via Ticketmaster. Doors @ 7:00 p.m. Presented by AEG. They go on sale Friday, she thinks.
