Scheduled for a January 10, 2020 release on Blonde Medicine, the debut comedy album from Andie Main is titled Magpie in reference to the tattoos of this species that adorn both of Main's arms. Andie Main began her comedy career more than 8 years ago in Portland, OR where she was born and raised, but has recently relocated to Denver, CO following a tumultuous time involving a divorce, death of a sister and loss of a dog. The material on Magpie is both hyper-personal and super-political. Main describes it as "a woman punching the system back". Magpie was recorded live in Portland at Kickstand Comedy in September of 2019 on the same day that Main received her second magpie tattoo - the first was taking off and beginning a journey, the second is landing in a new perch!
