[Andrew Bird]
About 700 years into the modern end of the timeline, fourteen books known as the Aprocrypha were rejected by Christian leaders at the Council of Nicaea for their heretical nature. If Andrew Bird's Aprocrypha were to be considered anywhere near as condemnable today, you can pretty much feel free to call me a heathen. By now, it's been well-established that the two of us here at Both Sides are devout listeners to the teachings of Andrew Bird, and religious allusions aside, it's simply because Bird is, quite frankly, a genius and a master at his craft. While many artists, having a potential yet to be released, are diamonds in the rough, Andrew Bird is one of a handful of artists that have been cut, polished, and sold among the glitziest of circles only to be recut and refined into even more impressive gems. His pieces are finely tuned in every aspect - mesmerizing, sophisticated, smart. Armchair Apocrypha is Bird's next anticipated release with a date set for March 20th; I'm hoping that the fact that South By Southwest occurs the weekend prior to its release is more than just a mere coincidence...

Andrew Bird has some dates set up for March with a nice empty chunk of time between two shows (Dallas and Dublin) that just so happens to be SXSWeek, hrm....

I've gotten word that makes me think your hunch about Andrew Bird coming for South By Southwest is right...
