Andrew Bird Live at St. Marks Cathedral in Minneapolis! 12/12/09

Andrew Bird will be coming to St. Marks Cathedral in Minneapolis, MN, Saturday, December 12!

The show will be $29 plus utilities and there is also more expensive tickets for better seats.

Based out of Chicago, Andrew Bird provides some of the best Indie/Folk/Baroque pop music I have heard in my lifetime.

This man is completely individual in his music, and I have never heard anyone else that sounds like him.

He writes all of his own song, sings them, plays many instruments such as; violin, guitar, glockenspiel, and the man can whistle like a champion.

His songs put me into a unique thought process where I get lost in his music. I would recommend this artist to anyone and everyone.

Here’s my favorite song by Mr. Bird-
