Andrew Bird @ The Miramar in Milwaukee
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!
