This is a past event.
Presented by the Bardavon
Due to inclement weather the Andrew Bird event was postponed until June 22 and tickets for the March 7 date will be honored at the rescheduled show.
Andrew Bird is an internationally acclaimed multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, whistler and songwriter who picked up his first violin at the age of four and spent his formative years soaking up classical repertoire completely by ear. As a teen Bird became interested in a variety of styles including early jazz, country blues and folk music, synthesizing them into his unique brand of pop. Since beginning his recording career in 1997 Bird has released 13 albums and performed several hundred concerts worldwide.
He has recorded with the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, appeared as “Dr. Stringz” on “Jack’s Big Music Show,” and headlined concerts at Carnegie Hall, Sydney Opera House, and festivals worldwide. Mojo Magazine declared him “simply incredible live.” In recent years he performed as the Whistling Caruso in Disney’s “The Muppets” movie, scored the FX series “Baskets,” and collaborated with inventor Ian Schneller on Sonic Arboretum, an installation that exhibited at New York’s Guggenheim Museum, Boston’s ICA and the MCA Chicago. Bird has been a featured Ted Talk presenter, a New York Times op-ed contributor, and is an advocate for Everytown for Gun Safety. Additionally, Bird hosts an ongoing Facebook Live series of performances called Live From The Great Room, putting the creative process on display for fans as he performs and converses with friends and collaborators in a candid, intimate setting.
Buke & Gase will be opening – Arone Dyer and Aron Sanchez improvise, organize, mix, master, release and perform genuine, contradictory, rhythmically dense, thoughtfully lyricized and melodically-driven sonic landscapes. Always accounting for self-sufficiency they aim to perform each sound live, utilizing all available limbs to manipulate their sonic space. They filter and tweak the self designed instruments referred to in their nom de plume through multiple effects concurrently while triggering home-crafted rhythms in time, therefore, the duo is often seated during their shows, and the flurry of action onstage has led many an observer to question who plays what and how in the deceivingly wide aural experience. The girl sings her heart out; medics will siren their arrival shortly after the final note to replace her throbbing meat-ball with scotch tape and pliers.
