mark your calendars, indie kids, sufjan is coming to town

as reported yesterday by rich in cable and tweed, sufjan stevens will be playing the fox on september, 20. a quick check of the ok productions calendar shows ‘tickets on sale soon.’

i’d probably keep checking, ’cause this one is going to sell out pretty quickly.

for those of you who have no idea wtf i am talking about here and here. because you really should. the music is totally worth it.

    I second this. If you don’t know Sufjan, look into him. He’s the bee’s knees.

    Also, although I urge early ticket purchases I wouldn’t be that concerned about it selling out *too* quickly. Still, I’d buy ’em early to assure good seats. The Fox isn’t usually GA for shows.

    This guy makes underwhelming Christian yuppie music.
    Case closed.

    Illinois is underwhelming? Wow.

    And I warn against dismissing him as Christian music. I did the same thing for years, but eventually gave him a chance. Very, very glad that I did.

    “underwhelming Christian yuppie music”

    someone once described u2 to me that way too. oh well you can’t please everyone. i for one will be at sufjan and enjoying every minute of it.

    cheers, rich. the fox is pretty big and i guess getting a seat isn’t really the issue. getting a *good* seat, tho. different story.

    Good music is good music. If you don’t like it then don’t listen. Don’t slam someone for what you think they believe. I have no use for any religion but I have found many types of music that would be deemed religious to be wonderful. From Indian/Hindu chants put to music, to many classical pieces that are all about God.

    I’ll be there. “Illinois,” was one of the best records last year, inventive and original. I applaude an artist who writes with conviction about his beliefs.
