Andrew Bird, Gabriel Kahane

With his diverse instrumentation that pulls from a variety of influences and a remarkable work ethic, Chicago native Andrew Bird has enjoyed an increasingly successful career. Known chiefly for his violin playing, singing, whistling and glockenspiel-ing, Bird has become an indie rock staple. With more than a dozen solo albums under his belt, Bird is currently on tour supporting his most recent album, Are You Serious. The record is unusual among his output, as he draws from a smörgasbord of influences, from classical to folk to jazz and more. New York singer-songwriter Gabriel Kahane will open for Bird on Monday at the Georgia Theatre.
