Following the release of new album Outside Problems, Gezelligheid serves as an intimate celebration – a communal experience of comforting music amidst the chilly, seasonal darkness.

Referencing a Dutch term that loosely translates to “cozy,” the Gezelligheid performances feature a mixture of instrumental violin pieces and fan favorite songs amplified only by Bird’s signature giant Victrola horns.
