It's been awhile, friends! How's everybody doing? There's a new interview of Mr. Bird in the Eidé magazine with some new portrait shots by Jimmy Johnson

Click on the magazine cover to read the interview! 

It's a very interesting interview that talks about the making of Break It Yourself


Check out the interview for gothamist HERE

A list of summer U.S. tour dates has been announced and you can check it out HERE

Andrew has also recorded "Near Death Experience Experience" with Radio France's Maison de Radio. There's a traditional version and an interactive version of the video that you can play around with: Bird en Boucle
(Note: You will need Google Chrome to use the interactive version.) 
Just realized Mr. Bird had been doing a lot of radio interviews and performances recently promoting "Break It Yourself" and I thought I'd just gathered a couple of them in one post for people who are interested. Granted, the questions are rather repetitive, but it's still nice to watch/listen.

Bing Lounge 101.9 KINK FM: Interview | Dance Caribe | Near Death Experience Experience | Eyeoneye | Give It Away

Field Day Radio (interview is at around the 20-minute mark): Interview  

Not radio but there are highlights from last Saturday's Coachella performance: Plasticities | Dance Caribe 

And now a question: Did anybody purchase the deluxe edition of "Break It Yourself"? I only have a digital copy so I've been contemplating of getting a CD but was torn between the normal edition ($12) and deluxe ($15). Is the DVD from the deluxe edition worth the three extra dollars? XD Thanks!

Yes... this news totally required all caps, haha. 

Announcement on his official site: Andrew Bird's new album, entitled "Break It Yourself", will be released on March 6, 2012. There's also a list of North America tour dates. 

I'm SO excited for this! Finally get the chance to see his live performance!

Chicago Live! interviewed Xan Aranda, the director of Fever Year. The video also included a small clip from the movie so if you didn't have a chance to see it, this is the best you're getting for now. XD

For you lucky Chicago residents, or those who will be visiting Chicago during the month of December, Andrew Bird and Ian Schneller's exhibition "Sonic Arboretum" (thoroughly explained here on MCA's website) will be on display from December 6th - 30th, 2011. 

Here's a video introducing the exhibition:

Andrew will be performing at the museum on December 21 and 22.

I think I'll just be moping in a corner by myself for missing this... Le sigh.

Hello everyone! This is ryukoishida and I'm your shiny new maintainer and moderator of andrew_bird. Since the original owner and mods of this community seemed to have abandoned this baby, I am now taking over... well only in the sense that I'll be deleting spam posts and such to ensure everyone is having a good time here :)

In an attempt to make the comm more organized, I've tried to put entry tags for the past 200 something posts dating back to 2003 (wow!). This is to make searching through past entries easier for those who wish to do so. But I think I've only gone through about 1/4 of the posts :/ 

I'm also relatively new at maintaining a comm (this is my first!) so I welcome any and all suggestions to make this place more fun and lively! 

Here's a short list of posting rules, which I've also posted on the User Info
+ Opinions are welcome; rudeness and flaming is not.
+ Fanworks (e.g. graphics, fanfictions, fanart) are welcome.
+ Please tag posts accordingly.
+ Please make use of LJ-cuts for the following:
- large posts 
- images over 400px 
- more than 3 icons

The posts of this comm are also currently NOT moderated; in other words, anyone who's a member can post here without waiting in queue for my approval. However, if there are increased amount of spam posts or otherwise unrelated posts, I will change the settings.  

But first things first: Who's still around?! :D
