Andrew Bird is a bad ass. It’s that simple. He came to The Venue this past Wednesday night and I was lucky enough to go. He is a musical genius, combining the beauty of classical instruments, humming and clapping, with drums, a xylophone, and guitar. At dinner before the show, we were discussing the odd phenonenom of synesthesia (a condition in which the real information of one sense is accompanied by a perception in another sense. For example you can smell the color green.) I’m not sure if Andrew Bird experiences this, he vagely touches on it in an NPR interview…but it would fit perfectly with his music. I only wish I could see the colors of his music. NPR has 2 full concerts available as podcast for free.
