Andrew Bird, St. Vincent to Play The Ryman Oct. 10

Posted By on Tue, Jun 30, 2009 at 3:35 PM

As reported by Pitchfork earlier today, Andrew Bird and St. Vincent will tour together this fall, including a stop at The Ryman on Oct. 10. Those of you who missed out on Mr. Bird's insanely packed Grimey's in-store can now have a fairly intimate engagement with the whistling one. There's probably a reasonably good chance he'll do that thing where one pays homage to the venue by playing/singing unamplified at the edge of the stage, relying on the Ryman's acoustics. Or maybe he'll play his violin through six Marshall stacks. I dunno. My crystal blog isn't working today. (Unfortunately, as Out the Other points out, this will be during Next Big Nashville.)

In any case, I, for one, am really geeked to see St. Vincent again. As I've said before, she and her band were fully sensational at Bonnaroo--and I was both sweaty and sober when I saw them. In the video above you can see Ms. Clark & Co. perform "Marrow" on Letterman. Very cool, though it seems they'll let pretty much anyone play that show these days. If you haven't seen St. Vincent's Lake Fever Session, go ahead and add that to your list for today.

Tickets for the 8 p.m. Oct. 10 show are $27 and go on sale Friday, July 10 at 10 a.m.

Update: Pre-sale tickets are available through Andrew Bird's website if you're a "fan community" member, which requires an email address. (HT: Frank.)
