Violinist and multi-instrumentalist Andrew Bird from Chicago seems to have quite a following in the US, and rightly so. He’s playing at IndigO2 (the dome) on 26 April, and will do my best to get to it. In fact give me a shout if you want to come a long!
I’ll definitely buy his album Armchair Apocrypha this week (payday soon!). His single Imitosis is quite a fresh sound. Good video too:
