Andrew Bird at Outside Lands 2012 (more by Amoreena Lucero)
Andrew Bird will play three special shows in December as part of his "Gezelligheid" series of concerts. "Gezelligheid" is a Dutch term that loosely translates to "cozy." Says Bird, "What I hope to do with these shows is adapt my music completely to the atmosphere of the space and the season. I want the audience to be both lifted and comforted as we head into another cold and dark winter. I feel the space should be sacred so the audience can experience my music in a different atmosphere."
For his NYC show, Bird has chosen the lovely Riverside Church on December 10. Tickets are currently on fan pre-sale and go on regular sale Friday (10/5) at noon. As part of this series, he'll two two shows in Chicago on December 19 and 20 with a full band show in Minneapolis on 12/17.
In the meantime, gear up for Andrew Bird's new LP, Hands of Glory, by streaming the new track "Three White Horses" below. Look for the LP on October 30 via Mom + Pop.
