Andrew Bird | Live on NPR Sunday, May 20th
I was super impressed with Andrew Bird‘s live show, which I was able to catch back in April as a part of the Green Apple Festival here in Chicago. He’s got such a distinct sound and creates some really cool atmospherics with all the loops and orchestral textures.
So I was stoked to see that NPR would be streaming his upcoming show at the 9:30 Club in D.C. this Sunday, May 20. Per usual, NPR’s Live Concert Series will not only stream the show live, but will also archive it for later listening.
Here’s Andrew Bird at Coachella, doing “Plasticities,” one of my favorite songs from his recent album, Armchair Apocrypha:
