My CD group introduces me to all sorts of music. One of the artists who's shown up more than once on compilations is Andrew Bird. On a bit of a whim, I bought Brian and I tickets to see him last night at the Fillmore.
The show was fantastic! Andrew's first instrument is the violin and he often played it with his guitar strapped on his back. He used loops and other fancy electronic stuff in the most beautiful way. It was a lovely evening of great music.
