Show Post: In House #1505
Andrew Bird has long been regarded a fine musician, a reputation that was initially built on the work he did in the mid-90's both with the Squirrel Nut Zippers and his own band, Andrew Bird's Bowl of Fire. However, beginning with 2001's The Swimming Hour, Bird dropped the neo-swing novelty and began to be noticed as a talented songwriter as well. The more modern-pop direction continued with 2003's Weather Systems and came to full fruition with this year's The Mysterious Production of Eggs, released on Ani DiFranco's Righteous Babe label and most certainly Bird's magnum opus thus far. The release is nothing short of mesmerizing and will undoubtedly appear on many best of the year lists. Andrew Bird opens for Nickel Creek tonight at the Eccles Center for the Performing Arts in Park City, UT.
