Andrew Bird: Album in October Live Dates In December

USELESS CREATURES OUT OCTOBER 25

Andrew Bird
Andrew Bird’s Useless Creatures—previously only available with the deluxe edition of Bird’s 2009 album Noble Beast—is set for release as a stand-alone LP and CD for the first time on Fat Possum Records October 25. An instrumental companion piece to Noble Beast, the album features Glenn Kotche on percussion and Todd Sickafoose on double bass.

In addition to the release, Andrew Bird will reprise last year’s intimate solo “Gezelligheid” performances in select cities this winter. Appropriating a Dutch term that loosely translated means “cozy,” the performances concentrate mainly on instrumental violin pieces amplified only by Bird’s signature giant Victrola horns. Tickets for these performances go on sale September 25. Please see below for a list of tour dates.
