The Tucson Studio presents Birds + Arrows recorded on location at Centennial Hall on Sept. 24 at 6p.
Southwest rock duo Birds and Arrows are Andrea and Pete Connolly. The band was formed in Chapel Hill, N.C., in 2007. Over the past 10 years Birds and Arrows have released four full length records. During that time, they also released a holiday EP “Holiday Forever” from which, songs have been featured on compilations with Wilco, Big Star, Yo La Tengo, Whiskeytown and more. After many years spent as an integral part the NC triangle music scene, the band recently relocated to the southwest.
Moving to the Arizona desert has been more than just a drastic change of scenery for Birds and Arrows, it’s turned out to be a radical change in vision and in attitude. Having outgrown the skin of their quiet NC folk beginnings, the desert has given them the space and freedom to finally shed the honeymoon sweetness of their past. Birds and Arrows’ brand new album “Arbitrary Magic” is the band’s first full length release since relocating to the magical land of Tucson, AZ. This new, wildly energetic group of songs allows listeners to experience first hand, Birds and Arrows’ transformation from love lorn folk duo, to hard hitting, rock and roll badassery.
