Birds & Arrows 

When: Fri., Feb. 11, 8:30 p.m. 2011

"It used to be a much more pared-down folk sound," explains Andrea Connolly, half of what used to be a husband-wife duo called Birds & Arrows, "and as Josh has come in, I feel like we've gotten a little more brave about branching out." She's talking about cellist Josh Starmer, a longtime Birds & Arrows guest who's now made the band an official trio. Tonight the newly formatted Birds & Arrows previews its upcoming spring release, We're Gonna Run. Warm nostalgia turns melancholic as Starmer's haunting cello supports the beautiful simplicity. Psychedelic and rock undertones are stronger this time; overall, the songs tend to be darker.

"You know," says Andrea, "that's life. I feel like we had a lot of really highs and a lot of really lows last year with music and within our personal lives." Those personal highs and lows will be revealed as the evening alternates between album cuts and the stories behind them. The $10–$12 ticket price includes a piece of art made by the Connollys, along with a download code for five tracks off the upcoming record. Pete explains, "Our energy is high with the new material right now and, with the actual manufacturing of the record still far off, we wanted to do something where we could share our excitement." —Andrew Ritchey
