Andrew Bird may be the last survivor of swing. A former Squirrel Nut Zipper and current chamber-pop extraordinaire, Bird brings the plucked strings, UFO whistle and Rubik's Cube wordplay from new LP Noble Beast (Fat Possum) to New Orleans, with Loney Dear, the one-man melody medley of sensitive Swede Emil Svanängen. Tickets $20.
