Andrew Bird Heads into the Troy Savings Bank Music Hall
Singer-songwriter Andrew Bird will be winging his way in the Troy Savings Bank Music Hall in Troy on Thursday, October 13. Opening the show at 8pm will be Dosh.
A former member of the Squirrel Nut Zippers, Bird plays guitar and violin – as well as displaying some mighty prodigious whistling skills – as he incorporates elements of jazz, Gypsy and classical music into his own unique brand of evocative, indie folk-rock. He’ll be rolling into Troy in support of his latest album, “Useless Creatures” on the Fat Possum label.
Priced at $33.50, tickets will go on sale to the general public at 11am on Friday.
Mr. Bird has come a long way from the Larkin show in 2003. However at that show, due to the enthusiastic response he did say, “well, we’ll have to put Albany on our World Domination Map now”. It appears he is a man of his word.
My wife and I were part of the amazed crowd at that Larkin show – he also came through the area Oct. of 2008 at the Egg – he’s pretty much a must-see when he comes through – Kirsten Ferguson’s review of his 2008 show can be found here: (third review down, I believe):
