Playing to what looked like a capacity crowd at the Orpheum Theater last night, Mr. Bird & Co. did not disappoint.  Lonely Dear, from Sweden, started the night.  They were a fitting choice to open, as they are somewhat in the same genre.  The lead singer has a great voice, and reminded me of David Gray at times.  They put on a solid performance.   

The dimly lit stage consisted of vintage amps and what looked like over-sized victor Victrola amplification horns.  It provided just the right mood and atmosphere for the night. 

Mr. Bird took the stage wearing a green and blue plaid jacket, shirt and tie, blue pants, and pink socks.  After about fifteen minutes of performing alone, he was joined by his band.  Andrew Bird is simply amazing.  So talented.  Thoughout the show we were treated to the violin, guitar, loops, effects, xylophone, and clever whistling.  His band was tight and works quite well as a four-piece. 

Andrew Bird, touring in support of his new album, treated us to songs of old and new.  Notable songs were the catchy “Oh No”, “Placticities”, “Anonanimal”, and “Fake Palindromes”.   

On the way out, and on the T, the general consensus was that the show was amazing. 

A special evening indeed.
