M. Ward and Super Furry Animals will bring their music to the fans of New York City at the popular Webster Hall show venue.

The Portland, Oregon based singer-songwriter and guitarist M. Ward will be playing at NYC’s Webster Hall on May 4 in light of his new album, More Rain. This means that fans can hear the full glory of his band and all of the classic rock and Americana sounds of his latest album.

M. Ward is known for his work as half of the indie folk duo, She & Him, which was his band with Zooey Deschanel. Along with releasing five LP’s as She & Him, M. Ward has multiple solo albums under his belt as well as a collaboration with Bright Eyes’ Conor Oberst and Mike Mogis, and My Morning Jacket’s Jim James under the name Monsters of Folk. He is also a fulfilled producer for artists including Jenny Lewis, Carlos Forster and Mavis Staples.

Now, if one show isn’t enough, here’s another!

 

The Welsh psychedelic rock group, Super Furry Animals, is back for more U.S. shows! They’ll be taking on Webster Hall on July 21, giving fans the opportunity to see their spirited, power pop-influenced performance.

Mwng

Since their start in the early 90’s, they’ve released nine studio albums that made it onto the Top 25 of UK’s Albums Chart. Described as one of the most imaginative bands of our time by Billboard magazine, Super Furry Animals has been back ever since a 15th anniversary re-issue of their album Mwng, which is entirely in the Welsh language. SFA’s are sure to deliver a powerful show that will keep the audience grooving.

She is a frequent concert-goer, whether they’re happening in New Brunswick basements, Asbury Park venues, concert halls in NYC and anywhere in between. Alternative rock is her go-to genre (i.e. Kings of Leon, Cage the Elephant, Foals, The Maine and lots more). When she isn’t writing for The Pop Break, she works at the North Brunswick Public Library, which offers plenty of Fantasy/Adventure novels to quench her love of reading.

Just try not to ask about her next career move, because trust me, she’s working on it.
