couldn't find the old thread, maybe we lost it.

I just saw a Subaru commercial last night with M. Ward's 'Her Comes the Sun Again'.  I had never seen it before, perhaps it's new.

Are we going to get some new M. Ward dates soon or what?

WE got the Newport Folk Fest w/ special guests....unsure what that may mean but he is definitely due for a new album/tour.

I'm digging, digging deep in myself, but who needs a shovel when you have a little boy like mine.

Sorry BH...but you know the drill.  M.Ward lives in Portland and is most likely a home body like many of us here.  When you live in Portland, it is easy to stick close to home.

I've seen him now with She and Him and MOF but I NEED to see an M solo show.

Agreed that M. Ward solo is a must see.  That's what probably clinched my decision to plan on Newport Folk Fest again this year. 
Close enough!

as much as I like MOF there is nothing like an M. Ward solo show.

I'm getting to see M. Ward open for Bright Eyes at Wolf Trap in June. I scored second-row seats in the pre-sale. The last M. Ward show I saw was in D.C. in Feb. '09 I believe.

The first time I saw M. Ward was during the original MOF tour back in '04 at Club Laga in Pittsburgh.

Most definitely.

Awesome show last night!  The Crystal Ballroom was not even half full (that will happen on a 3 day run, Tuesday-Thursday), which made for plenty of dancing room.  He threw down some of my favs (Helicopter!  Chinese Translation! Sad, Sad Song!).  And his covers had me twisting, no freaking joke (may have been influenced by me wearing my saddle shoes  ;)). 

Check out the setlist here:

I wondered if you'd gone!  Are you going to all three shows?  I'm going tomorrow night #3.  With Baby MMJ in tow.  I hope she let's me stay for a while - we haven't had much practice yet (at all) with the ear muff thingies.  I really want to stay late to hear Doug Martsch's dj set but I think that's probably wishful thinking..

Wow that's a great setlist.   I wonder how much he's going to mix up the songs each night.  If he does, I'd bet right now this one would be my favorite  (the 3 favs you list are also mine!)

that setlist looks awesome!

M. Ward is opening for alison krauss union station at the Berkeley Greek the day after the Oakland Fox MMJ show.  We're thinking about going.

He's apparently working on a new solo album again (finally) and is planning to add more solo dates (just him and a guitar) in the near future!

Sweet!  Please please please have St. Louis, or KC or Memphis or Louisville or Nashville on the list.

It was a great set list, feel very blessed (once again) to live in Portland.

Here is the poster for the event:

I hope he doesn't take too much time working on the new album.  The pitchfork article makes it seem like he is taking his time....
Must be enjoying the new kitchen my friend designed for him and his lady  ;)
