andrewbird3 Andrew Bird announces annual Gezelligheid holiday shows

Prep those Xmas sweaters now, kiddies: Andrew Bird has announced dates for his annual Gezelligheid holiday shows. Appropriating the Dutch term for “cozy,” these performances center around “instrumental violin pieces amplified only by Bird’s signature giant Victrola horns.” It includes a three-night engagement in Bird’s native Chicago, along with the first-ever West Coast shows scheduled for San Francisco and Los Angeles. Bird’s frequent collaborator Tift Merritt will return as friendly elf opening act.
