Andrew Bird live @ Luxor, Cologne, Germany  
If you think his studio records are great, wait till you see the guy play live. Mr Bird's performance tonight simply blew me off my feet. None of the boring type of exact replica of songs so many bands call a live gig, but bracing improvisation that makes you sway to the beat. Sure, you hum along but the way he varies the songs keeps your attention captured closely.

Why's gotta be Andrew's best song for stage performance if you ask me. Great play of love, tease and exasperation.

Some girl fainted in front of the stage and Andrew actually stopped playing until a friend got her up again and out of the crowd. Later on, he picked up on it again asking if anybody else was ready to faint. Which he would totally understand why. Hee.

Andrew did some sight seeing earlier today and promptly thanked everyone for coming to this cave [The Luxor] whith sunny weather like that outside.

And since my camera's mike totally sucks, have some pictures instead of videos. Looks like you'll just have to make it to a concert yourself for the musical treat.

Alright I'm beat. See you later.

OMG WHAT IS THIS! Guitar and violin?! I must give this guy's music a listen!

Yup, and he also inculdes a glockenspiel and whistling. He's looping stuff and pretty much a one-man band. Though he's had 3 guys with him doing backup.

Find his myspace here. The guy's genius.

I'm listening to his songs right now. SO PRETTY. And unique! I love it.

Unique is a good word for him. If you like more of him, I warmly recommend his earlier live recordings named Fingerlings and his album The Mysterious Production of Eggs.

Das klingt nach einem tollen Konzert! Ich hör mir grad "Why" auf Youtube an, weil ich zu meiner Schande gestehen muss, dass ich ihn nicht kenne. ^^

Yay, freut mich, dass du ihn mal ge-youtubed hast :) Hoffe es gefällt.

Es ist ungewohnt...aber irgendwie ist der Mann schon genial...;)

*lach* Da sagst du was. Den ersten Song, den ich damals von ihm gehört hatte war A Nervous Tick Motion of the Head to the Left und zunächst war ich hin und her gerissen zwischen Gefallen und Abneigung. Dann hab ich einfach weiter reingehört und mich plötzlich hoffnungslos in seine Musik verloren.

*grins* ich denke, ich könnte es mir nicht auf die dauer anhören, ich kenn mich ja....aber trotzdem finde ich es faszinierend!

Hehe, ich denke es macht die Abwechslung. Man hat so ein paar Lieblingskünstler für jede Stimmung, oder?

Und faszinierend beschreibt's wirklich gut. *zustimm*
