"Is anyone here from Ottawa?" Deschanel asked at one point in the show, a reference to where She & Him played on July 4, and the kind of of course non sequitur fans might expect from the "New Girl" star and empress of all things quirk. Yet despite Deschanel's de rigueur bangs, made(well)-to-order attire and an overall sense of twee emanating from the stage, She & Him put on a very solid, low-key show, one that the band's fans seemed to enjoy even while sweating out of pores they likely didn't realize existed. (It was such a hot night in New York on Saturday that even the late Sidney Lumet would have said, "Too much.") - [Huffington Post]
Despite that 90+ heat -- made a little more bearable by Summerstage's wooded surroundings -- folks did indeed come out on Saturday (7/6) for the cool sounds of She & Him who were smartly paired with their Merge labelmates Camera Obscura for their first of two shows at Central Park Summerstage. Pictures from that early evening show are in this post.

She and Him, and Camera Obscura -- who both also recently hit Chicago -- have their second Summerstage show with tonight (7/8). Tickets are still available.

Camera Obscura shouldn't be opening inthis situation. Also, waaaaaayyyy too many pictures of She & Him.

Also, absolutely no one paid any attention to that no cellphones rule.

The pit and wall of death at that show must have been INSANE.

"The pit and wall of death at that show must have been INSANE."

Totally bra, I did some sweet spin-kicks and hardcore moves once the pit opened up.

i wish people *would* pay attention to the no cell phones rule. enjoy the concert in real life, not from behind your tiny screen.

That's enough, Zooey Deschanel.

Wish M. Ward would tour alone. Or with Monsters of Folk!

She & Him prove that underground music and the counterculture are truly dead.

I love this so much. Great song and a wonderful video. People are dressed, it is bright and happy, no creepy signs, burning crosses and masks...why cant all artists make normal videos??

Was the Dog On Wheels a reference to Belle & Sebastian? Also saw a reference to "Swans". Anybody catch anything else?
