She and Him

"Andrew Bird -- Wow, was this guy awful. I wanted to get close to the stage for She & Him so I had to tolerate Bird's performance. It was horrendous. He played a violin like a guitar. Not cool. But what was perplexing was that everyone else LOVED this guy. It was like I was taking crazy pills. He had more people than either The Go! Team and She & Him (who sandwiched him on the south stage). When his set was over everyone cleared out. What were these people thinking?!? She & Him were next! It's times like this that I lose faith in humanity." [Yeah Right]
A violin like a guitar?!?!?! Pics from Andrew's performance at APW the same weekend are HERE. More pics of She & Him at Virgin below...

Who the fuck are you?

These are live concert photos documenting the event. They do their job. By the way, posting a few photos on Brooklyn Vegan isn't the same as 'publishing'. Ease up, pump yo brakes, etc

@1:20: i know what they are and what their purpose is; however, one could be a little more discerning.

I can only hope that that guy's post was sarcastic, but I'm pretty sure it wasn't. Really funny either way.

On another note...how old is M. Ward? Did he just age 10 years in the past month? Looks like my dad. I thought he was around 30...wtf?

andrew bird is awful, sorry he is pretty terrible. seen him 2x based on recommendations from friends and just can't dig this guy at all. btw, BAO photos are sweet. keep putting up as many of them as possible. so to recap: andrew bird= not very good, sorry andy AND BAO= more pics, that is all

She and Him is a wretched failure; it's like having one's ears rubbed with a box made entirely of beige crayons.

I was there Sunday. I enjoyed Andrew Brid's performance. Hard to describe it, but I enjoyed his sound (and boy, does he love to do him some whistling). She & Him I liked a lot too; I thought Zooey's voice sounded much better live than on record. That said, I thought Iggy & the Stooges stole the show Sunday. They were really great...

"He played a violin like a guitar. Not cool."

this is the kind of nonsense i would expect from a She & Him fan. expand your brain you fucking loser.

I don't really like She and Him. I like Zooey as an actress though

but who in the world would say that about Andrew Bird? he is a musical genius!

Hey 1:55 PM....he's not a piece of meat, ya know! There's a real person there. Stop objectifying. I'm going home and taking a cold shower with my clothes on because you made me feel dirty.

I was going to sit this one out, but I have to mention that you can't take the reviewer seriously when they described She & Him as "fantabulous" on their own piddly blog. What are you, like 12?

Andrew Bird is perhaps the best whistler ever.

This dress you're wearing is quite fetching, young lady. May I take it off?

i feel comfortable saying Andrew Bird is not so good.
I'm surprised he's getting a lot of love in these comments. I'm glad the original writer (BV?) was honest. But I also don't care for vanity projects like She and Him. (especially when they don't sound that good)

"I'm glad the original writer (BV?) was honest"

the original writer is the blog behind the link the quote is attributed to.

aw, i thought he was pretty good. not my very favorite ever, but definitely solid & interesting to watch.

anyway it does blow my mind that andrew bird fans arent also she & him fans ?

A lot of people making sweeping judgments based on one person's opinion. Wait, where am I? Oh right, Brooklynvegan. Carry on.

"He played a violin like a guitar. Not cool." I feel like I lost IQ points for having read that that blurb

Can you email me with some pointers on how you made your site look this awesome, I would appreciate it.
