Montreal's Patrick Watson is opening for Andrew Bird on his current tour which hits NYC Friday night (5/4) at Beacon Theatre. (Tift Merrit is opening the Saturday 5/5 show at the same venue.) If you can't make the Friday show or want to see Watson again, he's playing a free show at Brooklyn's Manhattan Inn on Saturday. Doors are at 4:30PM and the show is at 5PM.
The Manhattan Inn show is a release party for his new album Adventures in Your Own Backyard which was released this week, his first for Domino Records. You can stream it on Spotify and watch the video for "Into Giants" below.
After his tour with Andrew Bird wraps up, Watson will go on a headlining tour of the Midwest and West Coast. All tour dates are below.
