Andrew Bird’s Latest Album Gets Political Without Getting Obvious

Musician Andrew Bird stopped by the Morning Shift just about 3 years ago. That night, he was playing Millennium Park. Tonight, he’s playing on another iconic stage, the Chicago Theater. Born and raised in the Chicago area, Bird got his start playing violin in punk and Celtic bands here while finishing his studies at Northwestern. He stops by to talk about his latest album, “My Finest Work Yet”.
