Get ready for guitar exclamations both punchy and profound in this double bill featuring veteran Portland-based singer-songwriter M. Ward and the up-and-coming power pop talent of Margaret Glaspy, whose debut album Emotions and Math was released by ATO Records this summer. Fueled by “a conviction that simple songs can transcend time” (Pitchfork), M. Ward has been a galvanizing force in folk-accented indie songwriting since the early 2000s. Ward and Glaspy’s songs share invigorated traditional structures and potent vocals, but where his songs possess a certain moodiness, she tends to charge her lyrics with defiant sunniness.
