Hi Yall, I am lovin the new recording. I can see and hear that you have pared down the band to 7. What happened?
Actually, Ryan is on trombone on almost every tune on the new record, so on the recording it's mostly still an 8 piece, as we had been for the past few years. Ryan majored in Political Science in college, and at the beginning of last year, he decided he wanted to go to law school to enter the field of political/social activism. He officially left the band about a year ago to begin preparing for that (and he's entering law school in the fall of this year). He's still very much a Dirty Bird for life and we love him and wish him the best! (And he still pops up onstage with us from time to time!)
I went to the Rough Trade site to try and buy tickets for 5/20, very confusing. First of all, not clear you can buy tickets if you don't go there on 5/18. Second, if you can, what time does the show start? Your site says 8:00, they say 7:00, and they have another band listed to play at 8:00.Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds responded on 05/12/2015 Next question
Come to Philly, come to Philly, come to Philly. I know that isn't a question, but I'd love to see you guys live. Love your sound!Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds responded on 05/22/2015
