Last night I had the privilege of seeing Sufjan Stevens at a sold out concert of 600 people at The Majestic in Madison, WI. I knew it was going to be a great show the moment he stepped on stage in a blue "WISCONSIN" t-shirt, camouflage hat, and said: "Sup 'yall, I'm Suff-jan Stevens", making fun of a common mispronunciation of his name, and went right into playing my favorite song, Seven Swans.
Sufjan Stevens - You Are the Blood - Totally missed Sufjan's cover of the Castanets song when he released it in January. For those that also missed it, listen below while you still can. This 10 minute song is pretty epic. The style change 4 minutes in gives me chills.
