Andrew Bird to visit Energy BBDO/Chicago

| No Comments

Creative salons aren't new in Chicago advertising circles. But Energy BBDO/Chicago has picked up on the concept and has been inviting occasional creative guests to visit the agency and inspire the staff. The next guest on tap is Andrew Bird, described as a one-man musical innovation machine. He will visit the shop Monday for a lunchtime performance and discussion.

A Northwestern alumnus, Bird has performed at a wide range of locales, including Carnegie Hall, Lollapalooza, Coachella and, most recently, TED. Bird plays folk rock using various instruments, including violin, guitar, mandolin and glockenspiel. In a recent profile, the New York Times described Bird's music as "swelling and orchestral" with "emotional complexity." Bird lives on a farm in rural Illinois and has a studio in a converted barn.
