Birdcloud is a such a force to be reckoned with. I first saw them by accident during Free Week last year and ever since have been obsessed, to say the least. I’m glad everyone else got the memo, because they sold out Mohawk last Friday night. With songs like “Saving Myself For Jesus” and “Fuck You Cop,” these ladies, you could say, write comedic songs. But unlike Garfunkel and Oats (who they’ve been compared to), they aren’t comedians writing music — they’re musicians writing songs that just happen to be fucking hilarious. On stage they play facing one another and, at this show, took breaks to share the same vodka-soda and roll around on stage with each other. Joining them Friday night were local badasses Moving Panoramas and even though the crowd may not have came for them, they sure did enjoy them. Swoon over them really. You can see in my photos that Birdcloud invited Moving Panos’ singer Leslie onstage to “serenade” her of sorts during their set. It was magical.
