Love Andrew Bird. Great songwriter, lyricist and arranger, and the only name whistler in modern rock. He’s going on tour and utilizing (some) biodiesel to get him and his crew around. Using Biodiesel is great and all, but what’s this about “select dates?”
C’mon hippie, get with t.
Continuing his eco-friendly efforts, Chicago native Andrew Bird will hit the road aboard a bio-diesel tour bus for select dates in the US
and Canada this fall, including appearances at the Austin City Limits Festival and Bumbershoot.
Earlier in May, a concert at the 9:30 Club in Washington, DC was webcast by NPR and is available for download here:
On August 16th, the music video for “Imitosis” will debut on Andrew’s Myspace page for one week. Filmed in Seattle by noted short film director Britta Johnson, this video features Andrew and his band, Martin Dosh and Jeremy Ylvisaker, performing in a part science-film, part dream-world drawing from the palettes and photographic style of science books from the late 1960s.
Be sure to watch tomorrow!
