There is no one quite like Andrew Bird.  His soaring, complex-but-not-cluttered music never fails to take you on a journey, sometimes dreamy-light, sometimes deathly-heavy, always daring.  You can read all his details on the fancy Internet, so I won’t rehearse them here (they are interesting; you’ll want to check them out).  I will say our favorites include “Anonanimal” (you try saying “See a sea anemone, the enemy, see a sea anemone”), “Sovay”; for an incredible fill-the-room-with-beauty experience, put on “Hole in the Ocean Floor”, lean back in your chair, close your eyes and just listen for the next eight minutes. 
Here’s Bird at Austin City Limits (in a hip tshirt, I should add).
