'Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival Presents Andrew Bird'
The city's best lineup of free summer music kicks off its 33rd season with a little night of art-pop. Bird's looping violin, melancholy impressionistic lyrics ("From proto-Sanskrit Minoans to porto-centric Lisboans," for example, from "Tenousness"), old-timey instrumentation, and electronic filigrees add up to music that both soothes and dazzles. And Bird's whistling should harmonize nicely with Prospect Park's avian population.
