Unsuccessful custodian of 26 Chickens

We went to see Andrew Bird and Josh Ritter at ZooTunes last night at Woodland Park Zoo. Andrew Bird has a song on his latest CD called "Spare-Ohs". Before he played it last night, he explained that it's not at all abstract. He had 26 chickens at his farm, and a predator (wolf? fox? I don't remember...though fox sounds right) got in one night and ate them all. Ok, then he got a little weird with how the sparrows built nests with the chicken feathers, blah, blah, blah.

Gotta say, I didn't like Andrew Bird for a variety of reasons. I think his latest album is ok, but I was unimpressed with him in person.

Anyway, perhaps I'll wax all fan-girl on Josh Ritter tomorrow.
