Bowerbirds announce fall tour

Following Bowerbirds’ July release, Upper Air, the band spent the bulk of the summer touring across North America, playing to enraptured audiences everywhere. We are pleased to announce that Bowerbirds are hitting the road again this fall, visiting Europe, joining Elvis Perkins in Dearland for some special shows in the Northeast and headlining in select US cities.

Bowerbirds shows are a breathtaking experience – Phil Moore’s vocals are sublime and gorgeous, and the band’s subtle orchestration is at its most magical when heard live. Live footage of Bowerbirds performances does not fully capture the magic or intimacy of the performances, but it is as close an approximation as you are likely to hear if you’re not near a show. Watch Bowerbirds perform “Northern Lights” at the 2009 Pitchfork Music Festival, and the greatness of this song truly shines through. For a completely different experience, spend some time with Bowerbirds in an intimate apartment concert hosted by La Blogotheque. The band performs several songs up close and personal for a dozen or so lucky fans as part of La Blogotheque’s new series, Les Soirées de Poche. It is a simply beautiful performance.
