Picking Up Crumbs: Andrew Bird “Gezelligheid” Concerts

14 Dec


There is something perverse about this: I feel better about living in a place that turns viciously cold because artists like Andrew Bird decide to put on special, intimate concerts here, despite the fact that it was me and not he who stood outside in 10 degree weather waiting for the cathedral doors to open. I suppose it is a larger-vision re-affirmation, that this is a place where artists feel safe and welcome and able to put together what they desire (as opposed to the more base survival drive of other, larger markets.) Any way you slice it, Bird sold out three shows at St. Mark’s Episcopal Cathedral, and it was a breathtaking affair, and one for which a single word in English does not work, so we’ll stick with “Gezelligheid.” You can see Staciaann’s full photo slide show for City Pages here and the review here.
