unfortunately, i wasn’t able to make it down to austin last week for sxsw. however, all was not lost. dallas reaps some of the benefits of south-by simply due to proximity. so, when andrew bird came to town sunday night, i got a little taste of what makes the annual music showcase so special.

btw “Me” = “hello”
