Nightlife Highlights: Andrew Bird 

October 17. Chicago-based multi-instrumentalist, lyricist, and whistler (that’s what his website says) Andrew Bird hasn’t released an album since 2009’s acclaimed Noble Beast, but that doesn’t mean he hasn’t been busy. Besides penning an original score and several songs for the soundtrack of the film Norman, which opens in select theaters this month, he recently contributed a version of Kermit the Frog’s “Bein Green” to a Muppets tribute album and even found time to jam with West African folk collective Etran Finatawa. Bird lands in the Hudson Valley this month for a very special evening at the Bardavon. (The Hudson Valley Philharmonic presents “Viva Vivaldi!” October 15; Kris Kristofferson visits November 4.) 8pm. $35, $42. Poughkeepsie. (845) 473-2072; www.bardavon.org.
