I wanna hang out in this "Great Room"--a venue for Andrew Bird and pals--where we got this song.

 

Andrew Bird is a treasure. He has a musical series called Andrew Bird: Live From The Great Room, which is what it would seem to be from the title, Andrew performing in a room, with talented musicians joining him. Think of a stationary ‘Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee’, or perhaps, “Musicians in Andrew Bird’s House Not Drinking Coffee But Playing Music”. This one features Andrew with Matt Berninger–who’s no slouch himself–of The National & El Vy.
