Ephman thinks that even Andrew Bird was surprised that he was playing Radio City Music Hall. He thanked his manager, and sounded like he was accepting an award. After the show was done Ephman was probably even more surprised then Andrew was. He seems like a nicer fellow then most people that hit that stage. He was humble, spoke from the heart, and totally played his guts out.
The only problem was the the songs that really got the crowd going were few and far between. Very bland. Actually the last few tunes when the opening band Calexico came onto the stage to play with him made Ephman realize that maybe Andrew needs a bigger band, a bigger sound to go with his music. Calexico's horn section really helped. One thing should be noted about Andrew Bird, he sure does play a mean violin. And the irony of his great whisling really help too. Almost forgot he has a wonderful voice. But for the most part the songs were dry. And infact the women sitting infront of Ephman had her head on her friends shoulder for most of the show, leading to believe she was sleeping. No surprise there, Ephman let out some legendary yawns.
Here's the intersting thing... small venue, intimate place, you can see him upclose, and his show must be great! Also, he's writes solid lyrics, a lot of his stuff made Ephman want to really listen for those gem lines. Maybe it was because the performance was lacking? The sad part is that Ephman feels bad that he didn't enjoy this show as much as he wanted to. Might be tough to get him out the next time Andrew's in town to see the show. You are in for a real treat... Ephman recorded Opposite Day, which could be one the stronger songs he played this evening. Check it out below, you might become a fan, Ephman hopes so.
