M.Ward is for Lovers

Last night at Webster Hall, M. Ward made hearts go a-flutter.

Following a tight set by the Lee Renaldo Band (yes, the same Lee Renaldo from Sonic Youth), Ward declared: "It's still very early in the night, but I know you guys are my favorite." The feeling was obviously mutual.

M.Ward's country-infused jams really got the crowd going. Most crowds dance and sing and yell at concerts, that's nothing special. But this crowd did something extra that most don't. They fell silent (totally, absolutely, silent) during the solo-acoustic songs that popped up throughout his set. That kind of silence is an amazing occurrence at concerts, one that really shows how much his fans respect his music. Their respect was rewarded when Conor Oberst (aka Bright Eyes) made a surprise appearance during M.Ward's multi-song encore.

And based on how many couples I spotted last night, this show should be perfect for date night with your special someone.
