Having spent a blisteringly hot afternoon touring the stages and the offerings at Forecastle Sunday, I and probably many others were happy to see some clouds roll in along with a welcome breeze when She & Him took the Main Stage at around 7:00 p.m. That was the literal relief; the arrival of Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward provided the figurative breath of fresh air that I needed. After registering the zany outfits and nearly bare bodies filmed with sweat and dust for a couple of hours, Miss Z. arrived in a cool blue frock, perfectly coiffed and made up, like she had just stepped off the set of a 50s-era movie.
