Andrew Bird played the Virgin Mobile Festival in Baltimore a couple of weeks ago and he’ll be making his way back to NYC on October 6th and 7th for two shows at the Hiro Ballroom. The cool thing about this set of NYC shows is that on at least one of the nights Canada’s Sandro Perri will be opening for Chicago’s most famous whistler. Sandro, as you may recall, was first mentioned here on the Dew Line waaay back in March of 2008. What intrepid readers may also know is that Mr. Perri released an impressive album in 2007 called Tiny Mirrors which managed to make the long list for the 2008 Polaris Music Prize.
