In House #1706: Andrew Bird & Nina Nastasia in Salt Lake City This Weekend; New Joseph Arthur
Singer/songwriter/fiddler Andrew Bird hits Salt Lake City's Club Sound (In the Venue) this Sunday, as he continues to tour on the strength of his outstanding 2005 release, The Mysterious Production of Eggs. Bird's work has always been intriguing, both with Bowl of Fire and on his own, but he raised the bar entirely with Eggs, which as you may recall was an In House Top 5 release of 2005 selection. Cass McCombs opens.
Also Sunday in Salt Lake City, New York City-based singer-songwriter Nina Nastasia plays at Kilby Court as she tours in support of her upcoming release On Leaving. The album, out next Tuesday, is a gorgeous, sparsely arranged collection of melancholic, autumnal tunes from Nastasia, who seems to have a way with songs in that vein. It's her fourth release overall and first on the Fat Cat label.
