You may not know who Andrew Bird is, but anyone under the age of five probably does. Chicago based indie rocker Bird has appeared quite a few times on a popular (I’m assuming) Noggin show called Jack’s Big Music Show as the ever so charming “Dr Stringz.” As lucrative as being a doctor can be, Andrew Bird must go out and do other things – so Bird decided to hit the road this summer for a tour. The tour officially starts off at Bonnaroo on June 14th, and continues through October 4th at Austin City Limits. The full tour is listed below.
