She & Him

. May 29, 2013.

The Ark is keeping the tunes sunny this summer by sponsoring a performance by She & Him. The duo is a hipster's dream collaboration — America's current 'it girl" Zooey Deschanel and the gallantly below-the-radar guitarist M. Ward. Their music is unabashedly vintage in sound, with Deschanel's voice both sentimental and dreamy, making even their saddest songs come off as rays of sunshine. As far as Ward goes, there probably isn't a contemporary guitarist who is more underrated. With a classic 50s rock n' roll style and effortless voice he adds the perfect masculine compliment to counter Deschanel's whimsy. Opening the show is Camera Obscura, the equally nostalgic indie pop band from Glasgow, Scotland. Expect more dreamy hooks and sweet harmonies. 

7:30pm. $35-$45. Hill Auditorium, 825 North University Ave. 734-761-1818. www.theark.org—JG
