On Friday I wrote about the fact that Band of Horses are coming to the Les Schwab Amphitheater on May 30, prompting at least one reader to complain about that band's lack of guitar solos. I also stated that info on an opening act would be coming soon.
Well, soon is now, because it's been confirmed that She & Him, the power duo of actress/vocalist/pianist Zooey Deschanel and producer/songwriter extraordinaire M. Ward will open the show.
The band debuted with Volume One in 2008 and will follow that up with the predictably titled Volume Two later this month. The band's songs tend to hearken back to the golden age of early '60s pop rock with Deschanel's sugary voice leading the way, as you can hear below.
