Win tickets and a free Amtrak Hiawatha trip for M. Ward in Chicago, plus a CD from The Exclusive Company
Each month, The Onion and The A.V. Club will send one lucky winner and a friend to a concert in Chicago, along with a pair of roundtrip Amtrak Hiawatha tickets and a free CD from The Exclusive Company. For April, we’re giving away tickets to see the one and only M. Ward at the Vic Theatre May 22.
M. Ward was a talented, much-beloved indie singer-songwriter before he became the talented, much-beloved indie singer-songwriter by the side of Zooey Deschanel in She & Him. That duo tends toward softer, wispier strains than Ward does on his own, but his sound still slots in well with aspects of folk from the ’70s. Ward’s 2006 album, Post-War, pleased a good many followers with its hints of Hank Williams, Nick Drake, and any number of less distinctive neo-folkies. The same went for 2009’s Hold Time, another solid Ward album put out by North Carolina label Merge. His newest disc, A Wasteland Companion, was released earlier this month.
In addition to the train and concert tickets, the winner will take home a copy of A Wasteland Companion, courtesy of The Exclusive Company. What do you need to do win? Just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with “M. Ward” in the subject line. Could it get any easier? (No.) Good luck!
