hey John-  do you know if that date was part of a new tour or just a random one-off?   I went looking for other tour dates / confirmation .... would love to catch him again and may consider making the trip to Portland... I did see that show on the State Theatre website but no other dates anywhere else; although, my google skills are poor.   I was hoping for a Boston date before / after.
Kyle, I see you found the other dates and imagine you'll hit up the House of Blues show, as its closer.  Portland is about 30-45 minutes longer to get to than Boston from here, but the Portland show is on a Saturday night, so that's where I'll be.  If any forumites are planning on the 5/5 Portland, ME show, let me know and we can break bread and wine (or beer) prior.
Close enough!

Portland sounds pretty good for a Big Night Out if I can rally Mrs Magh33ta but most likely, yes, it'll be Tues night in Boston ....

For what its worth, Michele will be joining me for this one and we will stay around the corner at the Eastland Park Hotel.  Its where MMJ stayed the day I met all 5, where DBT stayed the night I met 2 crew plus Cooley and Hood, so maybe an M. sighting is possible.  I'm looking for rates but the site is buggy.  I'll give 'em a call.  Some reviews suggest its m'eh, but if its good enough for Yim, its good enough for me!  I've stayed there twice and you can't beat the location and parking situation, too.

EDIT - Eastland Park is closed starting in April until some time in 2013, major upgrades as it becomes part of the Westin hotel chain.  The next best bet seems to be another place around the corner from the State Theatre, Holiday Inn's Portland By The Bay.  Rates are around $120/night.
Close enough!

Damn, a Tuesday in Chicago is my best option.   What's a guy gotta do to see an M. Ward solo show!!!
I'm digging, digging deep in myself, but who needs a shovel when you have a little boy like mine.

Eastland is a great hotel.  I hung out with MMJ at the bar on the top floor when they played there last time...and yeah closing for renovations.  I'm staying there one last time in Feb before it closes.  Portland is a great town.

I like solo M.Ward so much better than I care for She & Him. I'm so excited about this new album. So far, my favorites are "The First Time I Ran Away", "Crawl After You", and "Clean "Slate". I really like the use of strings on "Crawl After You".

It's also great music to clean the bathroom to; although, I'm currently trying to avoid dealing with sweeping/mopping the floor in there. It will have to be done though. My avoidance technique has not proved successful in keeping the house clean.
