She & Him -- the sweetly rendered throwback act belonging to one Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward -- has been playing to enthusiastic crowds for the better chunk of the last few months (two recent shows in San Francisco were in fact sold out). You've seen Ms. Deschanel in the ads for the upcoming Jim Carrey flick "Yes Man"; now hear her straight-out-of-'66 vocal stylings. Charming.
If you missed 'em at the Wiltern over the weekend, and you're sore bummed about that, hop in the car and make for Anaheim tonight. The duo behind sassy plea-song "Why Do You Let Me Stay Here" is rocking -- or, maybe the better word is "strumming" -- the House of Blues in a couple of hours (by the way, if you haven't seen this charmingly grim video, pay a visit to the band's web site this instant, or when you get home from the show).
The nice thing about rushing out to a last-minute concert at Downtown Disney? Dinner practically takes care of itself. We're rather fond of the pizzas at Naples Ristorante (and the hours are late-ish for both concert fans and people streaming out of the park) and Storytellers Cafe inside the Grand Californian.
Well, what are you waiting for? Get!
Wednesday, November 5, 7PM
