Andrew Bird at Outside Lands 2012 (more by Amoreena Lucero)
Andrew Bird
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.
