Our Pick: Andrew Bird, Loney Dear @ Orpheum Theatre (Sold-Out)
Tonight Seattle-based garage rockers Murder City Devils will be concluding a two-night stint at the Henry Fonda Music Box with local duo Tweak Bird. English indie rock outfit Mystery Jets are poised to play Spaceland for this week's edition of Club NME. And, as mentioned previously, Long Island-based pop rockers As Tall As Lions will be headlining the Troubadour for free if you're legal. But we strongly suggest doing whatever it takes to get into the Orpheum Theatre in Downtown to catch Chicago's crown jewel, Mr. Andrew Bird. The classically trained violinist will not only mystify you with an unparalleled proficiency, but also a very singular, songbird-esque trill. Sweden's own multi-instrumentalist Loney Dear (LAist Interview) is slated to kick the show off.
