Bowerbirds | Varsity Theater | 1/19

Sharon Van Etten opened the night, but I missed her performance.

Everyone was sitting down when I walked up to the stage at Varsity. I don’t know if they all dropped acid together or what, but I haven’t seen that happen ever. Then Bowerbirds came out. Everyone remained seated so it confirmed that they had been drugged (maybe in a trance from Sharon’s performance).

After a song from Bowerbirds, I too felt drugged (in a good way). They sounded sincere and honest as they passed each melody through the air.


The show took a tragic turn when the lead singer grabbed a child out of the audience and threw him back at other audience members yelling, “Akon aint got nothin on me!!” I think he was referring to that viral vid from years back. See for yourself.

First he grabs the victim…

Then he throws him back.


This was his nephew, and there was a real tender moment when the kid walked up and gave him some pictures he painted. Awwwww.

One might say these cats gave a bower-ful performance…but then that just makes me confused and think about Kiefer Sutherland.

If you don’t already own their album, Upper Air, I suggest you go here and get it.
