    My friend Marj turned me on to Andrew Bird with Lull, then my friend Carla and I saw him open for Nickel Creek (they were awful! but Andrew was so dreamy). I wanna see Andrew as the headliner! with the seats full and people paying attention… Carla & I were enthralled, but people were milling around and talking, getting ready for the headliner, while some SERIOUS awesome was going on! (and I’ve never been to the Schnitz :)

  3. Nico Bella April 4, 2012 at 12:48 pm #

    Oh my goodness!

    Andrew Bird is one of my absolute favorites and this is on a Wednesday, one of the few days I can actually go out!
    I would love to attend.


  4. Michael Pittman April 4, 2012 at 12:48 pm #

    Last time I saw Andrew Bird his show had me in tears! Such a moving, incredible experience! Would love to see him at the Schnitz.

  5. Sarah April 4, 2012 at 12:49 pm #

    He’s so fantastic… I’d love to win tix to his show!

  6. ModernDAVE April 4, 2012 at 12:51 pm #

    Please send some tickets my way!

  7. jane nelson April 4, 2012 at 12:54 pm #

    I’d love to win tickets because Andrew Bird is the most amazing whistler ever!

  8. Aubrey April 4, 2012 at 12:56 pm #

    I would love to see Andrew Bird live, especially at The Schnitz.

  9. Jessie April 4, 2012 at 12:58 pm #

    Have recently discovered his music,would love a chance to see him live!

  10. Becky April 4, 2012 at 1:00 pm #

    I would love to win because entertainment funds are at an all time low with so many bills. I would love a night out.
    Thank you

  11. jn April 4, 2012 at 1:01 pm #

    My boyfriend and I surprise each other by planning outings every month, then we “kidnap” each other and go do the activity. It’s my turn this month, and this would really make him happy!

  12. Eric April 4, 2012 at 1:05 pm #

    Oh yes please, his live shows are mu-ha-gical. My wife and I saw him open for The Decemberists, on our first anniversary, and our minds were blown. I’d love to take her to this!

  13. Lauren April 4, 2012 at 1:09 pm #

    I didn’t win the Powerball jackpot, but Andrew Bird tickets would be a close second! :)

  14. Kat April 4, 2012 at 1:17 pm #

    I’ve enjoyed Andrew’s music for a while but had sadly not yet gotten to see him live – and would love to see him; also, independent of this give away, I literally just discovered Laura last night – she’s incredible! It sounds like a beautiful night and a wonderful combination – I would LOVE to get to go. Please pick me!!!

  15. Kristin April 4, 2012 at 1:18 pm #

    4/11/12 with Andrew Bird would make my world.

  16. jolene williams April 4, 2012 at 1:20 pm #

    Oh this would be fabulous in all this rain…love to see him.

  17. Elizabeth April 4, 2012 at 1:25 pm #

    How did I not know this show is happening? I love this man. I love his beautiful music and his beautiful face.

  18. France's April 4, 2012 at 1:32 pm #

    What!!?! I dreamt of Andrew Bird last night. That has to be a sign!! He was whistling to me on a bench. These tickets were meant to be mine!!!

  19. David April 4, 2012 at 1:52 pm #

    Embarrassingly I am late to the party as I only discovered Andrew about a year and a half ago. I have since got my girlfriend hooked as well. We LOVE Andrew and would love to see him at the Schnitz! Even if we miss him this time around we wont miss him again :)

  20. Berenice April 4, 2012 at 1:53 pm #

    This combo of violin and whistling would threaten to turn most into an annoyance. Instead, it has been integrated into my daily soundtrack. Pity point 1: I’m in limbo of potential layoff and can’t afford otherwise. Pity point 2: I’ve never been to the Schnitz! How f*ed up is that?!

  21. michelle April 4, 2012 at 1:56 pm #

    listening to Andrew bird blog only puts a smile on my face, but finally helped me figure out how to whistle.

  22. Kirsteen April 4, 2012 at 2:00 pm #

    It would make my day.

  23. Mark April 4, 2012 at 2:03 pm #

    iIf the music sounds good, then it is good. Love having A.B music on my IPOD. The perfect music to run to especially when running trails. It would be the perfect night out for my wife and I. We do not get many of these any more.

  24. Nadine April 4, 2012 at 2:05 pm #

    Can’t wait to see Andrew Bird in person – my niece told me about him last year and I’ve been wanting to see him in concert ever since. I’d be so grateful for the tickets! Thanks!

  25. Caroline April 4, 2012 at 2:07 pm #

    Winning tickets to this upcoming show would help to erase the mortifying memory of my last Andrew Bird show: My friend, bouyed by microbrew, lied about being in a well-known band from Boulder, Co to get us backstage to meet Mr. Bird. Needless to say, it was a short visit with Andrew, who knew quite plainly that we were not members of the band. Tail between legs, we hightailed it out of there. To his credit, Mr. Bird was a gentleman through and through.

  26. Neil Blanck April 4, 2012 at 2:13 pm #

    I want to attend to stand arm in arm with all the homeless sociopaths…

  27. Julia April 4, 2012 at 2:26 pm #

    it’s my best friend’s 40th birthday and she’s been dying to see this show but couldn’t afford the tickets. please help her celebrate in the best way possible. thank you!

  28. izzy April 4, 2012 at 2:48 pm #

    Andrew Bird is a legend! I would LOVE ti see him live… Ive been a fan for years! And Laura is an angel! please please please send tix my way!

  29. Joanna April 4, 2012 at 3:04 pm #

    I have been listening to Adrew Bird for years. I am so excited he is in town…hope I get to go see him!!

  30. Michelle April 4, 2012 at 5:33 pm #

    Would love tickets. My husbands birthday is this week and winning some tickets to this would be an excellent gift for him.

  31. Renee April 4, 2012 at 7:03 pm #

    I am not sure I can compete with some of these so I will give you more than one reason for me wanting these tickets in hopes you will be persuaded.

    Bribe reasoning – I have a music blog and will give you full credit for getting me into the show. I will put your name and links to your site everywhere I can think of.

    Sexy reasoning – Andrew Bird’s whistling makes me…..

    Pity reasoning – I just got laid off and can’t afford to do much of anything fun (no lie).

    Best reason (but not really) – I heart you guys and I heart Andrew Bird and well, really, is there a better reason than giving a good old fashioned “fan” a pair of tickets for no reason other than sharing some love in return?

  32. Rocko April 4, 2012 at 7:11 pm #

    I would very much like to see Dr. Strings.

  33. Rb. April 4, 2012 at 7:34 pm #

    I’ve been a fan of both of these artists for years, but have never seen Andrew Bird live. Such amazing artists!

  34. Jeremy April 4, 2012 at 7:44 pm #

    I’ve been a big fan of Andrew Bird for years now but I’ve never lived anywhere near a show – now I do! His music gives me the chills and inspires me all at the same time.

  35. Kacy Cullen April 4, 2012 at 10:16 pm #

    I adore Andrew Bird and I would absolutely love to win tix to this show!!!! Plus, I’ve never seen a show at “the Schnitz”

  36. Stacy April 5, 2012 at 8:28 am #

    I have the community mental health blues (thanks to the person who stole my stereo while I was on a home visit this week) and need some good music to cheer me up!

  37. Britt Q. April 5, 2012 at 8:53 am #

    I saw Andrew Bird perform in a hot, sweaty multipurpose room of my undergrad college way back in 2005. It is still singularly one of the most entertaining concerts I have seen – the man sure has a flair for theatrics. His music, talent and mystique has only improved in the following years; I’d love to see how that all translates on stage again.

  38. Jose April 5, 2012 at 9:52 am #

    Let me win!

  39. bw April 5, 2012 at 9:52 am #

    Put a (Andrew) Bird on it! I want these tickets. I want to woo a sweet woman with these tickets. This might just make her mine.

  40. Laura April 5, 2012 at 1:15 pm #

    This would be so rad to go to!

  41. daVe April 5, 2012 at 1:21 pm #


  42. Erik Pierson April 5, 2012 at 1:24 pm #

    Andrew Bird is the best whistler I’ve heard since Roger Whittaker. I’d truly appreciate the chance to win tickets to see him! Really!!! Plus, he and I are both from Illinois. :)

  43. Theresa April 5, 2012 at 1:41 pm #

    Andrew Bird is an amazing musician. Seeing him live in concert would be a magical experience! :-)

  44. Eric April 5, 2012 at 4:19 pm #

    Goodness, to be awarded these tix would be amazing. One if my favorite songwriters, a new album, accompanied by Miss Marling… Down right dreamy

  45. Robert April 5, 2012 at 4:31 pm #

    I would love to see Andrew Bird!!! And I never win anything… so pick me!!

  46. tam April 5, 2012 at 4:36 pm #

    I love Andrew Bird and have never been able to see him. This is the first show I can make, but I’m broke. Please help!

  47. Kelsey C April 5, 2012 at 4:40 pm #

    my boyfriend needs a birthday present.

  48. Nathan G April 5, 2012 at 4:44 pm #

    Would love, love, love to see Andrew Bird! Eyeoneye and Break it Yourself are amazing! And the girls would go nuts if I had an extra ticket. haha!

  49. Carolyn Wiesner April 5, 2012 at 4:44 pm #

    I have heard his live shows are amazing. Would love to win.

  50. Tim Hulford April 5, 2012 at 4:45 pm #

    AAAANNNDrew BIIIRRrrrd. Andrew Bird.

  51. Felicity April 5, 2012 at 4:45 pm #

    Andrew Bird is so lovely! My husband and I both have a great love for music and we think Andrew would be a great first concert for our unborn baby :)

  52. Courtney S. April 5, 2012 at 4:59 pm #

    I would love to see this show to get my whistling fix. That man is a virtuoso whistler.

  53. Leigha April 5, 2012 at 5:08 pm #

    I’m a huge Andrew Bird fan and have never seen him live. Plus Laura Marling; love her! Pretty pretty Please!!

  54. Marcus April 5, 2012 at 5:11 pm #

    Because Andrew Bird is amazing!

  55. Jeff April 5, 2012 at 5:13 pm #

    Years ago, I saw Andrew Bird in concert, by myself, in Chicago. It wasn’t life-changing. Perhaps this one will be.

  56. elie April 5, 2012 at 5:23 pm #

    Huge fan of both Andrew Bird and Laura Marling!!!!!!!! Would die of happiness to see either for the first time.

  57. Emmakat April 5, 2012 at 5:27 pm #

    I can’t think of a reason I wouldn’t want to see Andrew Bird. Great music, whistling, violin, he’s so cute, and the venue’s near me. Only reason I’m not going is that I can’t afford it. Sad.

  58. Sum April 5, 2012 at 5:37 pm #

    I have been wanting to see Andrew Bird for years, but the tickets are always too expensive. Over the last week I lost funding for my research grant, got rejected for the new job I was hired for due to having bad credit (wth!), had a roommate move out with no notice and got this monster flu that’s been going around. Oh please, please, put some sunshine into my life!! I will not only love you forever, but I will make a huge deal about your website on Facebook, I promise!

  59. Amit Gordon April 5, 2012 at 5:45 pm #

    i have been waiting a long time to see Andrew Bird. Been a huge fan ever since the mysterious production of eggs came out.

  60. Daniel April 5, 2012 at 5:54 pm #

    Would love to see this show!

  61. jessica April 5, 2012 at 5:57 pm #

    hey you should be picking me to win because that’d be neato!!! you da best!!!!

  62. roy April 5, 2012 at 6:10 pm #

    would love to see Andrew.

  63. anna April 5, 2012 at 6:11 pm #

    been dreaming about his return since I last saw him at Edgefield opening for The Decemberists… can’t afford the tix nor get on list so would be so rad if I should win…

  64. mary bauer April 5, 2012 at 6:31 pm #

    Saw the installment in Chicago and was wowed, so I got a ticket to the show at the Schnitz but my friend Linda wants to go so bad and can’t afford it…. I would love to surprise her with tix to the show and then she can invite someone along!!!

  65. Kali April 5, 2012 at 6:36 pm #

    I’ll throw my name in the hat. I love Andrew Bird!

  66. Toby April 5, 2012 at 6:38 pm #

    Would love to see this…so amazing

  67. Jen April 5, 2012 at 7:47 pm #

    My love of Andrew Bird is the greatest.

  68. josh April 5, 2012 at 7:50 pm #

    some real deal show away i go thanks for the heads up

  69. Justin HH April 5, 2012 at 8:08 pm #

    I have been a long time companion to many of his albums and after seeing him in Bonnaroo in 2009 I am ashamed to say I never saw him play live again. I would love to win some tickets, either way I think I am going to go.

  70. Jordan April 5, 2012 at 8:55 pm #

    The Michael Flatley of Whistling!!!!

  71. Janey April 5, 2012 at 10:44 pm #

    Honestly, I wish Laura was the one headlining, but I love me some Andrew Bird too. I have my opera glasses on standby…fingers crossed!

  72. patti April 6, 2012 at 12:30 am #

    listening to break it yourself at this very moment, what a great show this will be!

  73. Warrants April 6, 2012 at 6:54 am #

    Yes put a bird on it

  74. Barbara April 6, 2012 at 8:17 am #

    I have only just recently heard about Andrew Bird and his performance down at SXSW. Would love to witness this beauty in person. Please. And Thank you.

  75. Allison F. April 6, 2012 at 8:39 am #

    Laura Marling is, for me, a modern Joni Mitchell. Her voice is raw but beautiful and honed, and her lyrics are consistently thought-provoking, intelligent, poetic.

    My boyfriend is a huge, huge fan of Andrew Bird, and I have loved everything of his I’ve heard. Taken together, this concern would be a dream come true for the both of us. I didn’t even know they were coming! While I work full-time, I have crippling student loans, so I can’t justify spending $70 on a ticket. My boyfriend works part-time and goes to university, and definitely couldn’t afford it (plus, he’s cheap).

    Please, oh glorious Pipeline, make our collective day!

  76. Lane April 6, 2012 at 9:58 am #

    I’ve noticed most of the comments here are from Andrew Bird fans. I truly love Andrew Bird’s music, but I would love to have the opportunity to see the lovely Laura Marling live. There is no vocalist more talented and I believe that hearing her live at the Arlene Schnitzer would be breathtaking. I sadly can’t afford this show and I’ve never had the pleasure of seeing either of these musicians live. Thanks for your consideration.

  77. steve parker April 6, 2012 at 10:06 am #

    His stuff is pretty amazing, you don’t get tired of listening to it. I have a friend who would be overjoyed to attend this concert since she’s been working for $11/hr. and trying to pay off student debts. She listens to Andrew Bird on a daily basis.

  78. Hollywood Steve April 6, 2012 at 10:33 am #

    December – A broken hip, but 3 screws pin it back together! January – Oh No! the pins are backing out. Betty must get a whole new hip.
    April – After 90 days of grim rehab and caretaking, all restrictions are finally lifted. Betty can party again.

    Our Austin SXSW buds tell us Andrew Bird is the one to party to. At the Schnitz? Why not – it is time!

  79. christine Hippeli April 6, 2012 at 10:54 am #

    Love his and her music but without the $$$…the tickets would make my week/month.

  80. Alec April 6, 2012 at 11:31 am #

    I would really, really like to see Andrew Bird at the Schnitz.

  81. Michele April 6, 2012 at 12:16 pm #

    Andrew Bird is delightful to listen to and I would love to see him live… not to mention get the digital download. Glad he has a new album out!

  82. Ame April 6, 2012 at 1:30 pm #

    Witnessing this performance in person would be astonishing. Great music calls for great times! Free tickets make for the BEST of times!

  83. Luke April 6, 2012 at 3:56 pm #

    I love AB and would love to see the show.

  84. Don April 6, 2012 at 4:43 pm #

    Have never seem him perform live but have always wanted to. Let this be my time! Please, I want to go Bird-wathcing.

  85. donald April 6, 2012 at 5:15 pm #

    i’m from illinois and i remember when he was just a big thing in chitown. it’s been many moons since i’ve heard his violin sing and i’d love to enliven my senses again.

  86. Patrick McNearney April 6, 2012 at 6:47 pm #

    I’d love to win because anyone who puts songs on a CD from a first take is just too damn good to pass up.

  87. Tamara April 6, 2012 at 6:57 pm #

    I would like to win because I enjoy his musical stylings and I think it would be fun!!!

  88. Brian C. April 6, 2012 at 7:22 pm #

    Why should I get free tickets to see Andrew Bird you ask? The answer is simple really — I’m awesome. I am currently a student at university and as such budgets are tight. I have a fairly stressful schedule, one of my professors assigned homework for spring break that was due on the first day of class, can you even believe that shit? Anyways budgets are tight and free tickets would be awesome.

  89. Hops April 6, 2012 at 8:26 pm #

    Was introduced to Andrew Bird a couple of years ago and am now a big fan! Never seen him live. Would be awesome.

  90. Taylor crimson April 6, 2012 at 9:45 pm #

    I’d go gay for only Andrew bird

  91. Al April 7, 2012 at 12:30 am #

    Andrew Bird is a wonderful musician and I would seriously love to see him live (I’ve never seen him before!) His music makes me think of traveling with my roommates, and having dance parties in our kitchen, and oh how much I miss those girls.

  92. shannon April 7, 2012 at 8:28 am #

    Pick me! Andrew Bird is amazing, and I can think of no other way to spend my birthday night!

  93. Alyssa Anne April 7, 2012 at 10:24 am #

    The sweet, wholesome voice of Laura coupled with Andrew’s elegance is too much. Money doesn’t hang on trees these days, and getting a ticket from you guys and seeing their show on Wednesday would make my April… and just maybe my two-thousand and twelve. Thanks, PDX Pipeline.

  94. Erin Tafuri April 7, 2012 at 12:27 pm #

    I love laura marling so much it hurts and my boyfriend loves andrew bird, he feels pain. no really their awesome!

  95. Erin Tafuri April 7, 2012 at 12:28 pm #

    I love laura marling so much it hurts!

  96. Hannah April 7, 2012 at 1:14 pm #

    If i won this, i would just die.

  97. Cai April 7, 2012 at 1:22 pm #

    I found Andrew Bird seven yrs ago as a freshman in college. I saw him at a random free show at Reed and have been dying to redo that.

  98. Vanessa April 7, 2012 at 3:26 pm #

    This would be my first non-symphonic show at the Schnitz and I have been DYING to see Andrew Bird live…

  99. Alanna B. April 7, 2012 at 3:58 pm #

    OMG!! I love Laura Marling!! I would really love to see her again! Please oh please I’m begging…. :)

  100. Kai April 7, 2012 at 4:58 pm #

    My sweetheart loves Andrew Bird and this would be an awesome show for us to see! Free tix please!!

  101. Christi April 7, 2012 at 5:09 pm #

    I’d like to win!! Andrew Bird is an amazing musician and I’d love to see him live!

  102. Nicole April 7, 2012 at 5:50 pm #

    That man can whistle like his lips are made of magic.

  103. Ender April 7, 2012 at 7:43 pm #

    Andrew Bird… Yes please.

  104. Lou April 7, 2012 at 10:18 pm #

    Andrew Bird makes me whistle!

  105. Joe April 8, 2012 at 10:54 am #

    I love Andrew Bird and would be absolutely thrilled to win a couple of tickets.
    I never win anything and my cats sick
    make my day/month/year.
    Thank you Pipeline

  106. Leonard April 8, 2012 at 6:50 pm #

    Andrew Bird is amazing!

  107. R S April 9, 2012 at 7:55 pm #

    I would like to see him when he isn’t on a heroin nod

  108. Monica April 10, 2013 at 4:21 pm #

    It would be awesome to finally see Andrew Bird. His music has put on such a great influence on me!
