A rather playful tone was struck Tuesday evening at the Red Butte Garden.
Clad in a light blue dress to match her eyes Zooey Deschanel bounced onstage to woo a packed crowd as the sun set over Salt Lake City. Deschanel and M. Ward of She & Him performed more than 25 songs that included almost all of the indie pop duo's third album, "Volume 3."
She & Him brought the crowd to its feet from the outset, playing soft melodies from their new album. Deschanel, star of Fox's "The New Girl," engaged the crowd sparingly, but when she did, it was with her familiar aloofness and sincerity that fans have grown accustomed to on TV. She asked questions such as, "What did you do today?" and then after 15 songs, told the crowd to sit down because, "We're going to slow it down a bit."
