Andrew Bird @ Lollapalooza

andrewbirdlolla @AndyShore The introduction for Andrew Bird explained that Lollapalooza 2009 was serving as both a coming home and going away party for the Chicago native. Bird is scheduled to leave for a three week European tour this weekend. His dedicated fans were packed in up tight against the barrier and screaming their heads off from the moment he took the stage. Not a bad way to be sent off to Europe.

 

Bird opened his Lollapalooza 2009 set with “Fiery Crash,” possibly my favorite of his songs. Moving towards his newer material Bird played “Masterswarm” and “Fitz & Dizzyspells” early on in his set. Being in the photo pit, I was able to see Bird work his magic up close. It is absolutely amazing to watch Bird move back and forth between guitar and violin, all the while looping things in one microphone, singing in another and whistling like, well…a bird (Yes I’m aware every journalist ever has probably made that lame joke, but I don’t care. This is my first Andrew Bird review, jerks).

    Nice review, Shore!

    Wish I’d been there in Chicago.

    But I did get a chance to meet the amazing Bird man in Scotland in May. You might enjoy this video we made in his dressing room:
