She & Him at Aragon, June 29th, 2013.

I'm hoping the reaction to Zooey Deschanel singing has entered the backlash to the backlash stage. Mentioning She & Him, the actress's musical project with throwback songwriter M. Ward, to someone typically elicits an "UGH." Really, people, there are far more offensive things than a Blondie song dressed up to sound like Buddy Holly. Not that you could ever sense the hatewave from how quickly tickets sold out for the June 29 Chicago stop of She & Him. The duo's cute pop songs recall an American era when cars had wood paneling and fast food was actually good. Dressed in a paisley summer dress and sharply tailored suit (you can figure who wore what), Deschanel and Ward played their sugared covers (NRBQ, Mel Carter) and originals, largely from a recent album, Volume 3. The great Scottish jangle-pop act Camera Obscura opened. Honestly, She & Him have good taste. Just give in.
