Andrew Bird (9/24/19)

I’ve seen Andrew Bird plenty of times before (2005, 2006, 2017) - enough that I wasn’t going to go to this one - but they ended up handing out free tickets like candy on Halloween.  I know a lot of big Andrew Bird fans would probably be aghast by my being indifferent. I do respect him as an artist, it’s just that I’ve moved on - but hand me tickets and I’d still go.  There’s something so cavalier and enjoyable about going to a free show without concern of timing or length.  What did concern me is how poorly the show was selling to be giving them away, particularly as the Masonic is still getting its footing as a music venue in Cleveland.  Regardless, I had a great time.  He sounded great.  And there were enough people there that Cleveland need not be embarrassed (free tickets aside).

However, if you’re new to him, or haven’t seen him before - GO see him next time!  The strings and whistling alone are worth the price of admission.
