Andrew Bird Invites You To Church December 9, 10, and 11!

Is there any artist cooler than Andrew Bird?  The guy has always had this wonderfully unique way of looking at the world.  As a result, he has amazingly avoided the usual career obstacles by doing things in a way that's singular to the music that he is performing.  It's never about him, always the song.  In Bird's case, the songs are more than worth being placed upon a pedestal.  Are they worthy of worship, though?  Andrew Bird seems to think so!

From the press release:

Andrew Bird reprises his intimate “Gezelligheid” performances this winter at Chicago’s Fourth Presbyterian Church, and for the first time on the west coast, in San Francisco and Los Angeles. Appropriating a Dutch term that loosely translates to “cozy,” the performances concentrate mainly on instrumental violin pieces amplified only by Bird’s signature giant Victrola horns

Bird notes, “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.”

On December 9 & 11, Tift Merritt will be joining Andrew for a portion of the evening’s performance.

The Gezelligheid Concerts will take place in Chicago on December 9, 10 & 11 at Fourth Presbyterian Church, located at 126 East Chestnut Street, on the corner of Michigan Avenue and Delaware Place (across from the John Hancock Center). Showtime is 8:00pm each night. Tickets Go On Sale Friday, October 4 at 10am. All tickets seated general admission ($45 / $40) will be available online at To charge-by-phone call 800-514-ETIX (3849).
