By Tankboy in Arts & Entertainment on Mar 17, 2010 7:40PM
She & Him are scheduled to appear June 7 in the Pritzker Pavilion at Millennium Park
But it gets better!
Other acts we're especially excited about that are slated to appear include Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward's folk-pop duo She & Him, recently revived local garage rockers The Ponys, sonic experimentalist Caribou, fizzed-up pop-punkers The Thermals, Afrobeat legend Tony Allen and our own local mega-crush, the irresistible Kid Sister! And while those are just our personal highlights, the series as a whole is solid enough to guarantee we'll be fighting for a spot to put out blanket each and every date of the series.
