On May 4 M. Ward returned to New York for a headlining performance at Webster Hall. The stop came in support of his new album More Rain, which was released by Merge Records.

Support came from Nice As Fuck, the super-group of Jenny Lewis, Tennessee Thomas, and Erika Spring. It was one of their first live shows as a band, and saw them play in the middle of Webster Hall while the crowd huddled around them. It was a brief but delightful opening set that was certainly one of the most enjoyable opening sets I’ve seen in a while.

M. Ward has been releasing music since 1999, building a solid collection of albums through the year that leave him with plenty of choices of what to play during his 22-song set. The night was as career spanning as one would hope, with a few choice covers (John Fahey’s “Bean Vine Blues #2” and Chuck Berry’s “Almost Grown” to go along with welcome additions such as Monsters Of Folk’s “Whole Lotta Losin’.”
