Andrew Bird, Mavis Staples 

When: Tue., July 10, 7:30 p.m. 2012
Price: $25-45

Though it's often been very enjoyable, Andrew Bird's music of interconnected whistles and violins, complicated drums and tangential lyrics has occasionally had the tendency to be clinical—not quite soulless, but certainly not gritty and sweaty and impassioned, either. Good for him, then, that Mavis Staples shares this bill tonight. For all of Bird's finesse, she delivers force, a wrecking ball of performance intensity who's been at work since World War II was something that had just happened. $12.50–$45/7:30 p.m. —Grayson Currin
