One of the more interesting annual traditions in live music to be established recently are
Gezelligheid concerts. As per Bird's website, "Appropriating a Dutch term that loosely
translates to 'extra extra cozy,' the shows concentrate mainly on instrumental violin
amplified only by the signature giant Specimen horns."
Joining Bird at this year's shows - which take place in Chicago, San Francisco and Los
Angeles - will be Tift
Merritt. The Chicago native has picked intriguing venues to host the 2013 Gezelligheid
shows - Fourth Presbyterian Church in his hometown, San Francisco's Congregation Sherith
Israel and Immanuel Presbyterian Church in Los Angeles. A pre-sale
begins this Thursday before the general
on-sale on Friday.
