My City's a Sucker: He's like a bird, he only flies away to Tucson

It's been about a year since the Birdman who isn't Lil Wayne's daddy (a little wordplay shout-out there for the hip-hop fans) played San Diego, and that was an opening slot with his own daddy, label-runner Ani DiFranco.

Point is, it's been a while since Andrew Bird came to town, especially since he has a new album coming out March 19. But no dice. He's scheduled to stop in Tucson, then Coachella the day after. Then he's got three days to get to San Fran for his next show. So there's a slight window of opportunity. HoB could put him up. Nothing on its sked for the 29th or 30th yet. (more likely the 30th; he might hang out for Sunday of Coachella, although the consensus seems to be to skip that day and beat the traffic.)

So, Andrew Bird fans, hit him up. Pester him. Get him to S.D. Weezy F. Baby and Baby Heisman are behind you.
