My show next month in Philadelphia got canceled

I have no doubt it's because of poor ticket sales. How many people passed up tickets because they didn't want to pay a $15 fee on a $32 ticket. Stupid Live Nation

Sorry to hear that, BonoIsMyMuse.... I hope they reschedule it soon.

I'm seeing him here tomorrow, but I don't think ticket sales were great. He is playing in a relatively small club and it is not sold out. Looking forward to hearing the new songs, though.

That totally sucks, BiMM. I can't remember, were you planning to see him anywhere else this summer?

Hopefully it's a good one tomorrow, gump. Let us know how it goes.

Just returned from the concert and Andrew Bird was great, as usual. The new album translates very well live, maybe even better than Armchairs (which I prefer as an album), he manages to do the layers of instrumentation well with the loops. I'm mildly disappointed I didn't get to hear Fake Palindromes today, but he played A Nervous Tic Motion and Scythian Empires, so that's fine. He also played The Giant of Illinois from the Dark Was The Night compilation, beautiful song.

He came down after the show to the stand to sign CDs and I managed to get an autographed vinyl of The Mysterious Production of Eggs He was incredibly nice to everybody around, that was a big plus!

Glad to hear it was a good show, gump. I saw him solo here last fall and was amazed how much he was able to loop an layer just on his own. Noble Beast has definitely grown on me in the last few months, and I was especially looking forward to hearing songs llike Not A Robot But a Ghost and Anonanimal live. Unfortunately, I've already gotten a refund for my ticket, so apparently my show isn't going to be rescheduled. I'm a little bugged that there was no official announcement as to what happened.

Andrew is a really nice guy, very egoless. I met him last summer and go to talk with him a bit, and he was so sweet.

His last three albums have become some of my favourite album. How is his earlier stuff and the work he did with Andrew Bird's bowl of fire?

To get you excited, Bird is one of the performers on this falls Austin City Limits slate. I was at the taping in March and it was really great.

They let you in Texas without a huge belt buckle or hat?

I look forward to watching that show.

I've been listening to "Anonanimal" over and over here and there during the last week. It is a great source of goose bumps.
