Witnessing one of the more affected performances I have ever seen, Andrew Bird awed me with his live rendition of “Why?” at the Plaza Theater here in Orlando a couple weeks ago. A blues song on the violin? Craziness. If you have not had the pleasure of seeing him live, his footwork with the use of pedals create the backbone of the songs, creating loops of multiple layers and riffing over top of them. Ridiculous musicianry. If he is coming to your city, you NEED to see this man live.
