Multi-instrumentalist Andrew Bird makes his long-awaited return to Buffalo tonight. The genre-bending singer-songwriter will be stopping by UB’s Center for the Performing Arts, for what’s sure to be an awe-inspiring performance. The show is presented as An Evening With Andrew Bird, so there will be no opener.
Bird, who is a classically trained violinist, has made a long career of blending influences from all over the musical map, including jazz, pop, baroque, calypso, blues, folk, country, and rock. His most recent full length record, Are You Serious, was released through Loma Vista Recordings in 2016. Currently, he is working on releasing a series of EP-length audio-visual projects called Echolocations. Each one is recorded and filmed in a unique location, such as a canyon in Utah, an aqueduct in Lisbon, and the Los Angeles River.
Doors are at 7:30pm, with a show start time of 8pm. Tickets are still available for $39.
