Andrew Bird @ Auditorium Theatre in May (more by James Richards IV)

Like he's done in the past, Andrew Bird will be playing a pair of shows at the Fourth Presbyterian Church on December 19 & 20. If you belong to his fan community, you can purchase presale tickets NOW (it's also quite easy to signup). All other ticketing info for the Chicago shows are forthcoming. UPDATE: Tickets for both shows go on sale this Saturday (10/6) at 10AM CST. Stay tuned for a possible presale.

As mentioned, Andrew's new album, Hands of Glory, hits stores on October 30 via Mom + Pop. The LP boasts alternate versions of Break It Yourself songs, as well as a number of traditional country cover songs. He recently shared the album opener "Three White Horses," which you can take a listen to at the bottom of this post.
