The Noble Beast & Calexico

SHOW HYPE
Tonight - Friday 6/19/09
SCENE: Bank of America Pavilion Boston


The Fiercely-Talented Andrew Bird

A very special lineup at the Pavilion in Boston tonight: Appearing in an intimate setting - in one of his first shows since playing before massive audiences at Bonnaroo, Andrew Bird returns to Boston tonight (7:30pm). Still touring behind his stellar new album "Noble Beast" (RSL Best of 2009), Andrew Bird will find himself playing before an appreciative New England audience tonight. [BONUS: January RSL Post in excited preparation of Bird's first Boston show of the year -at the Orpheum.] Playing with Bird are longtime alt-country, indie explorers Calexico - a sensational band who are not afraid of plying more percussion than a room can hold. On their way to Europe for a lengthy tour - this will be Calexico's last performance on American soil for a some time. (If you can't make this show, we urge you to run out and pick up Calexico's new album titled; "Carried to Dust" - which will give you a taste of what this band is capable of. The songs on the album are the result of nearly a year's worth of hardy shows in front of appreciative audiences.) In many ways the arrival of these two acts here in Boston signals the beginning of summer. It certainly bodes well for our entertainment value tonight. There's a lot going on, entertainment-wise, throughout the region tonight - but this is where we'll be - look for the RSL tee-shirts.
