She & Him - on Tour Now!! Official Tour Poster by Hero

She & Him Tour Poster - Available at every show and on heroandsound.com on August 11.

We made the drive to Toronto last night to catch the first night of She & Him's 14 date tour and to deliver the official Tour Posters, designed and handprinted by Hero. They are limited edition and available at every date of the tour, and we will have a few available for purchase after the tour commences. They are 16" x 20" and printed on a light grey Via Smooth 80# cover.

Mark and I were not only able to meet Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward, but we had the pleasure of driving them to MTV Canada for their appearance, since their cab never showed up. (Thank you crappy TO cab driver)
They were both extremely nice, very talkative and a pleasure to be around. It's hard to crack my "front" when it comes to celebrities and I kept my cool, but I'm not gonna lie, I was freaking out a teeny tiny bit, the minute they got out when the "paps" were swarming our stupid little CR-V trying to get a shot of Zooey.

Catch them on tour if you can, the show was amazing, they sounded great live.

Their MySpace page says a series of 200. Is that 200 for each concert, or 200 total?

I was totally standing around when you guys showed up with the posters! I didn't know they had merch, and even inside, it wasn't clear! We were all like.. "where's the merch table!?" The only tables that were very noticeable were the ones with the shots and alcohol.

Will there be some that are autographed kept back for the August 11th launch on the site?

hey. There was no merch table last night because (I believe) they didn't have the rest of their merch with them. The joys of touring into another country I suppose. Because of that this was the only date on the tour the posters weren't available at unfortunately.
None of the posters are autographed, when it says signed and numbered it means signed by the poster artist, which in this case is us.
The few we have available on our site will in fact be part of the signed and numbered edition however.

Thanks!

Because I remember eh.. I'm not sure the names, but there was a girl and a guy who showed up with the posters! And I remember the guy asking about the merch table... and I can't remember if it was Scott or Mike, or Matt who said there was no merch table.

And I remember seeing you guys with the posters, so that's why I was all upset about not seeing them IN the venue yesterday.

And the fact that you guys drove them to MTV would definitely explain why we didn't see them leave in a taxi.

That sucks that you guys made the drive but there was no merch table. I would have just taken over one of the booze tables ;)

I'll just have to order a poster when they go on sale over the internet!

Thanks again for the info!
