The version of Why? from Live In Montreal is terrific. Apparently Fat Possum sold all of the first run of discs and is planning to release a second run of them later this year.

I have Noble Beast cranked up really loudly right now, and I'm hearing for the first time how richly layered it is. I still don't think it's my favorite of his albums, but it's definitely one of my favorites of the year so far.

Why are all of his shows within a five hour radius of me on school nights?

Where the hell are the dates? You can't be surprised he hates Florida, both you AND LeMaC live there. Add that whole Elian Gonzalez mess, and you've got your 3 strikes.

And then in June - behold!
June 8 Columbia, MD Merriweather Post Pavilion supporting: the Decemberists
June 11-14 Manchester, TN Bonnaroo Festival
June 15 Atlanta, GA Cobb Energy Performing Arts Center
June 17 Upper Darby, PA Tower Theatre
June 18 New York, NY Radio City Music Hall
June 19 Boston, MA Bank of America Pavilion

Calexico will be providing support for the June 15-19 dates. Pre-sales for those dates begin Thursday, March 5
I'm thinking of doing the Atlanta thing... but then I'd be skipping out on the National at the end of May.

Having seen both, I can't fathom skipping the Nash for Andy Birdman.

Not that Birdman is bad live. Far from it.

oooh, if I'm not unemployed in June, I think I'll go to that show at the Tower Theatre. That place has been good to me...it was where I met Wilco for the first time.

I'd planned to go see him in Philadelphia in June, but I'm not sure I can justify Live Nation's $15+ service fee on a $32 ticket. WTF, Live Nation?

I'm really enjoying the new album Wonderful layers and melodies. I thought Armchair Apocrypha was good but it didn't really stay on my radar for long; I might go back and re-listen to it now.

Dear fellow Bird watchers,

89.3 - The Current (which I believe senorita Got Edge introduced me to) has a number of awesome Andrew Bird performance vids up on Youtube. For example:

YouTube - Andrew Bird - Anonanimal (Live at 89.3 The Current)

Make sure to watch the above one in HD if possible, as it's really high quality. There are 4 more here: YouTube - 893TheCurrent's Channel
