Andrew Bird Concert
Last night David and I went to see Andrew Bird in concert. It was really great! He is so talented!! I love the violin and he plays it is the most amazing way. He also played the xylophone, the saxophone, the clarinet, electric guitar and he whistles. I am not sure how he can whistle like that. It is totally a gift! I love how he alternates plucking the violin and playing. It is really amazing. It reminds me of Mara and her guitar chording and picking. So cool! He also did a lot of recording and looping his recordings back into his song so he was playing 2-3 instruments at a time.
Here are some pictures we took :) We also took video but it sounds terrible because of the crowd noise. So, if you want to hear his work just look him up on youtube...there is tons. I want to see him again and take Josh and Mara..they would love it!
The opening band was Lonely, Dear. They are from Sweden and are so great! The lead singer has such an amazing spirit. I told David he is just so real and joyful in life. They were great and I will be adding them to my song list soon :)
