M. Ward at Newport Folk Fest 2011 (more by Jim Brueckner)
M Ward

As mentioned, M. Ward is set to kick off a tour with Lee Ranaldo in May which comes to NYC for a sold out show at Webster Hall on May 11. If you weren't able to get tickets to that show, he'll be back in NYC for a much larger show at Prospect Park on August 7, one of the ticketed Celebrate Brooklyn shows. Lee Ranaldo won't open this one (neither will fIREHOSE), but keeping the trend of having clasic 80s/90s indie rock bands on the bill, Yo La Tengo will. Tickets go on sale Friday (4/20) at noon.

Meanwhile, M. Ward, like fIREHOSE, played Coachella this past weekend and will again next week. Check out a video from his performance below.

He also released his new album, A Wasteland Companion, earlier this month via Merge. You can stream the entire thing below.

Updated dates, video, and album stream below...

Prediction - within 2 years Yo La Tengo will be playing for openings of car dealerships, shopping malls and Arby's.

YLT opening for M. Ward indicates we are truly living in a horrible state for music.

I have a really hard time believing M. Ward can fill Prospect Park as a headliner. Yo La Tengo should be headlining too, fuck this guy.

M. Ward should definitely be opening for Yo La Tengo. and Yo La Tengo outdoors will attract more people than M. Ward.
