Billy, Heather, Nate and I went to see Andrew Bird last night at the Mirarmar in Milwaukee.

I can't tell you how excited I am that i can get home from a show in 10 minutes. :D

This photo is from my Treo, but Stephanie Anne on flickr has a much prettier set of photos from the show.

I was impressed by how much music 2 people could make. Andrew Bird and Martin Dosh both used repeater pedals and samplers live, as extensions of their instruments, to flesh out "the band." I know that is not a novel technique, but it was the first time that I had seen it live.

I bought my first Andrew Bird album because Chris Ware had drawn the cover. What random luck!
