M. Ward might be best known amongst the mainstream audience as the “him” half of the Zooey Deschanel-fronted duo She & Him, but the Portland-based troubadour is also a successful solo artist with a slew of critically lauded albums under his belt. His seventh such release, A Wasteland Companion, hit shelves in the US this past April, but LA fans have yet to enjoy a live performance by Mr. Ward since the album’s release. However, that’s about to change.

Today M. Ward announced that he’ll be performing at the Orpheum Theatre in the City of Angels on October 21st. Tickets go on sale this Saturday at 10 am and will likely sell out, so I wouldn’t suggest waiting too long to pick yours up. If you can’t wait the two months until Ward’s LA date, you can catch the talented singer/songwriter on one of his many festival appearances, including Seattle’s Bumbershoot in September.

M. Ward Tour Dates:

08/23 – Salt Lake City, UT @ Twilight Concert Series *
08/25 – Boulder, CO @ Boulder Theatre
08/30 – Vancouver, BC @ The Commodore Ballroom ^
09/01 – Seattle, WA @ Bumbershoot Music & Arts Festival
