First/Last – The Bird Hour

“Birdadelic Rock based in the Pittsburgh Bird Basin. Fear no deviants love thy mother.”

The Bird Hour is a psychedelic alt-country band from Pittsburgh who will be performing tonight (Wed. 2/28) at The Funhouse at Mr. Smalls on the Ceramic Animal and Zeve bill I’ve been highlighting the last few days.
