M. Ward plays St. Petersburg May 1

   M. Ward, everybody's favorite alt-folk singer/guitarist, is coming to St. Petersburg.
   The Portland-based musician has received almost universal critical acclaim for his solo work as well as for She & Him, his duo with Zooey Deschanel, and Monsters of Folk, his band that also includes Conor Oberst, Jim James from My Morning Jacket and Mike Mogis from Bright Eyes.
M. Ward
   If that's not enough indie cred to impress you, he's also performed or recorded with Neko Case, Yo La Tengo, Jason Lytle and Cat Power and a bunch of other cool alternative folkies and rockers. 
   He's not a sideman, though. His own low-tech, quiet, beautiful music is at least on a par with that of the people he plays with. He's apparently just happy to let the spotlight shine on other musicians.
    But he'll be performing solo for his show at the State Theatre on May 1, which is what most of his fans would prefer.
   The show's set for 7:30 p.m. May 1. Tickets are $20 in advance (they go on sale Friday, Feb. 28) and $23 day of show. Go to www.daddykooltickets.com/osconcert-GA/product_info.php?cPath=31&products_id=1390.
