M. Ward is one of my favorite musicians. he is one of the most talented and gifted musicians I have heard in a long time. He played on Friday night at the stately Palais Theatre, here in Melbourne. It was an absolutely incredible show that left me feeling elated and on a high for the rest of the weekend. Portland's number one son knocked it out of the park that night. If you haven't had the pleasure, I suggest that you purchase one of his many albums right away. Seriously. Do it.
