  • "Psst ... he's the him"

What do you get when you mix a Hollywood star with one of our generation’s most valuable songwriters? A band of pronouns. Zooey Deschanel (from [500] Days of Summer) and M. Ward (lately of Monsters of Folk) inject She & Him with equal doses of sharp songwriting (she) and a history-scanning range of production tricks (him). They may repackage retro sounds into today’s new alternative from time to time, but fans don’t seem to mind digging up their ’60s AM gold. On their recently released second album, Volume Two, She & Him cover Skeeter Davis’ “Gonna Get Along Without You Now” and get their Supremes on in the Motown-flavored “Over It Over Again.” They play House of Blues at 8 p.m. The Chapin Sisters, a band of three female sibs with killer harmonies, open. Tickets are $22 in advance, $24 day of show. —Danielle Sills
