He's Keeping Busy

Andrew Bird is returning to Des Moines courtesy of the Des Moines Music Coalition:

Chicago singer/songwriter/violinst Andrew Bird has a distincitve style with his melodic multi-layered instrumentation and beautiful wide-ranging vocals. After an incredible performance to thousands of fans at this years' 80/35, Bird now embarks on a tour with many notable stops including Carnegie Hall in New York and Chicago's Civic Opera House. His new album Noble Beast will be released on Jan. 20.
I saw a few songs of his 80/35 performance while waiting for Flaming Lips to start. It didn't cut through the clutter, but everything I've heard about this guy is that you must see him live. He'll be at Hoyt Sherman Place on 2/28, which would be a cool venue in which to see him. Tix available via RipoffMaster or Hoyt Sherman Place.

On a related note, as they've done before, NPR is going to preview his new album starting 1/3 so save this link.
