Andrew Bird @ Tarrytown Music Hall (NY) in October (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)
7

Andrew Bird will pack-up the horsehair and steel (that makes playing the violin sound so burly!) as part of a string of dates in celebration of his forthcoming long-player Break It Yourself, out March 6th in the US (5th internationally) via Mom + Pop Records. Look for Bird to play selections from the follow-up to 2009's Noble Beast on that three-month jaunt that will include two nights at Beacon Theater, May 4th with Patrick Watson and May 5th with Tift Merritt. Tickets for both May 4th and May 5th go on AMEX presale at 11AM tomorrow (12/7) with regular sale hitting on Friday.

In related news, Chicago is welcoming the opening of Andrew Bird and Ian Schneller's Sonic Arboretum at the Museum of Contemporary Art today (12/6). Details are available at BV Chicago.

Tour dates and a teaser video for Break It Yourself is below.
