Andrew Bird played Carnegie Hall (video) & Chicago “Gezelligheid” shows (pics)

Andrew Bird has been throwing cozy Gezelligheid concerts at Chicago’s Fourth Presbyterian Church for a few years now and the three-show 2016 series wrapped up Friday night (12/16). Daniel Knox opened the night and pictures from the whole night are in the gallery above.

Before that, Andrew was in NYC to play Carnegie Hall on 12/12 which included a number of special guests, including Gabriel Kahane, current Prairie Home Companion host Chris Thile and Shilpa Ray. Most excitingly, Bob Dorough, who wrote (and sang) many of the classic ABC ‘Schoolhouse Rock’ songs and they performed some of them, including “Three is a Magic Number,” “Figure Eight,” and “My Hero, Zero.” You can watch video of “Three is a Magic Number” and check out the full Carnegie Hall setlist

Andrew, whose new LP is up for a Best Engineered Album, non Classical Grammy,  will next be in NYC as part of his opening slot on The Lumineers tour, which hits Madison Square Garden for two shows in February. All dates are listed below.
