Chicago-born violin and whistlin' virtuoso Andrew Bird spotlights some underdog locals on his eighth and latest, Things Are Really Great Here, Sort Of…, an album of Handsome Family covers. Bird is a big supportor of the husband-wife duo, having covered them in 2003 ("Don't Be Scared") and taken them on tour last year. Catch one of his distinguished performances at the Chicago Theater on August 16. And take his hint and dig into the Handsome Family catalog already.
