Andrew Bird... he's so awesome! I have all of his albums and all of his unreleased stuff (which is suprisingly good).

I agree about Anonanimal. That song is frickin schweet. My favorite song of the year after some stuff from NLOTH.

I just can't stop listening to Bird. His music is amazing. I want to see him live so badly. Hopefully he plays a show in Chicago in the near future.

I finally got around to listening to Andrew Bird, and now I'm regretting not doing it sooner. I've heard Mysterious Production of Eggs and Noble Beast so far. I pretty much loved the entirety of Mysterious Production. One standout song on Noble Beast was definitely "Anonanimal." So good. Armchair is up next. Are any of his earlier albums worth picking up?

Why is it that when ever he comes close to where I live I am always out of town or get back the day after he has played?

I'll be seeing one of Andrew Bird's church shows here in Minneapolis tonight. Hopefully, some good pictures will come about from it. I guess he's using his phonograph horns as the only amplification, and after seeing a few pictures from last night's performance, I can tell I'm in for an amazingly gorgeous experience.

That "buy a ticket, get download of the album, EP, and an upcoming EP" deal sounds awesome. Too bad he hasn't announced a show here yet.

I believe I purchased tickets last week to the show in my town and received no such code. I didn't buy them through his website, though.

Actually I just read the FAQ on his site and it doesn't matter where you buy your tickets, you get the downloads. Apparently the box office where I ordered my ticket is to provide some info with the tickets, which I haven't picked up yet. So, yay and thanks, Andrew Bird.

Wow, remember the days when a dozen different people would post in the first couple pages of a thread? Do we even have a dozen people anymore? Damn.

Andrew Bird is OK. I hope this new album is more instrumentally interesting and cool like Mysterious Production of Eggs and not boring like Noble Beast.

Yep. I hope he'll put out something as interesting as Tables and Chairs, Fake Palindromes or A Nervous Tic... He's been hit or miss with me lately. Armchair Apocrypha was good, but Noble Beast was uninteresting at best.

I have to say I grew more fond of him after watching the Andrew Bird Fever Year documentary, which helped me understand him and his songwriting approach better.

Interesting, I liked Noble Beast considerably more than Armchair.
