Not just some obscure comparison.
I opted for The National, but that was before I knew Andrew Bird was playing. Even if both options had of been available at the time, I still think the National would have won out in the end 'cause they're so damn good.
The National. Bird is great but his last album was so-so and that's essentially what he's touring. The National are kicking arse right now.
You could watch AB in Birmingham on the 6th and The National in Bristol on the 9th if you really can't decide.
I might do that. Hmm. It's more practical concerns that are the issue though. I wouldn't mind missing The National at all, it's just I don't want to leave my friend to go by herself, struggle to sell my ticket for The National, etc. But I wouldn't care about those things so much if someone came in here and said Andrew Bird was awesome live. Which I imagine he is.
This is a very tough dilemma. Looks like National though because it's the cheaper option and haven't seen them since Boxer came out whereas saw Andrew Bird only a few months ago.
What are the Anson rooms like?
I was going to go to that. If only I had. This would be so much easier :'(.
No idea what the Anson Rooms are like.
with St Vincent for support. You evidently missed that one too!
simply because I haven't seen he and my mate said he's awesome live.
The National are great live, too, though.
Is the girl cute? That's probably the deciding factor, eh?
That's enough for me <3
Hopefully they're do Daughters of Soho Riots. ;)
But Andrew Bird should have Loney, Dear as support, and Loney, Dear are amazing.
Eff-me. I knew it! I passed on a chance to see them at the Troubadour a couple months ago. Damn me!
Go See Bird. If only to catch Loney, Dear first.
Loney, Dear don't really do anything for me, whereas if I see Andrew Bird next time he tours rather than now, he might do more of a greatest hits set.
was excellent at Coachella. Being in London, i get to see both (looks for emoticon for smug grin)
