Andrew Bird at Schubas
As a warmup for his Friday night set at Lollapalooza, Andrew Bird added a charity show at Schubas Tavern. I'd already seen him once this year, but the chance to see him at Schubas was way too exciting to pass up.
Apparently lots of people felt the same way, because the concert sold out in less than 30 seconds. I clicked as fast as I could and failed to get tickets. I'd more or less given up until the day before the show, when Schubas tweeted about a releasing a few additional tickets for sale. This time, I got luckier.
The show was a little on the short side, since he and his band had an early morning soundcheck at Lollapalooza. But everything else about it was stellar. Being at Schubas clearly put him in a bit of a nostalgic mood, because he pulled out an older arrangement of a song or two.
