SHE & HIM, RED BUTTE GARDEN, Tuesday, June 25, 7:30 p.m., $50
I know that Zooey Deschanel is a divisive figure among hipster tastemakers, and I fall solidly in the pro-Zooey camp whether we're talking about her acting career or her music collaboration with M. Ward in She & Him. When it comes to the duo's music, it helps a lot that I've been a fan for years of Ward's intricate guitar-playing and ear for classic "Wall of Sound" production styles. Add in Deschanel's taste for retro girl-group harmonies and surprisingly strong songwriting sense that evokes everything from Patsy Cline to The Supremes, and you have some timeless tunes coming your way. I loved She & Him's first album, aptly titled Vol. 1, and they've followed it up with two more volumes just as good. Tilly and the Wall open the show.
