Madison Concert Ticket Giveaway: M. Ward

M. Ward

Portland’s Matthew Ward has earned himself legions of fans from his work in the endlessly charming She & Him alongside Zooey Deschanel, and as part of the Monsters of Folk supergroup, but on his latest tour, the neo-folk star will stand alone.   M. Ward will be performing this Wednesday evening at the Barrymore Theatre in support of his latest solo release, A Wasteland Companion.   Of his sound on the album, Q magazine remarks, “In upbeat mode, he’s made of stirring stuff, but the real wonder here is to be found when he drops a gear into hushed beauty and sun-dappled loveliness.”

We can’t wait to hear the sounds brought to life here in Madison tomorrow night.  One lucky blog reader will win a pair of tickets to the show—find out if it’ll be you, after the jump!
