Sufjan, follow your heart
Follow the flame, or fall on the floor
Sufjan, the panic inside
The murdering ghost that you cannot ignore

Vesuvius, fire of fire
Follow me now, as I ?

Follow me now, or follow ?
Why does it have to be so hard?

You're gonna love it.

I think at this point the album is my favorite since the one about the swans. I'm a sucker for breakup albums.

Very happy with his releases this year - still need to listen to Adz a bit more, but I loved All Delighted People. If his albums remain this consistent, then I couldn't care less if they're not about Idaho or Rhode Island.

Not sure why I hated All Delighted People so much at first. Listened to it again today, and really liked it.

Doing an advanced Pilates exercise. Lost my balance, fell off the Reformer, stumped my toe, got back on the machine and noticed my 2nd toe was at a right angle.

Now if somebody were to ask me what I would do if I noticed that my toe was at a right angle, I would reply that I would probably vomit and/or faint.

But as it turns out, apparently I'm the type who calmly reaches down, puts the toe back in place, and drives herself to Urgent Care (using the foot with the broken toe).

I remember we talked once about being afraid to exercise when a concert or other important event is on the horizon. Now we know our fears are justified.

I probably could have driven to Denver today, but I also had to go to a funeral this morning so it was a hell of a week. No one extremely close to me, but someone I know through work, and it is a very very sad story.



Anyway, the show was off the charts amazing, right? I spent hours answering emails last night after I posted my ticket for sale. That was one hot ticket and I sold it for face value + fees, of course.

Uggh, well that's terrible. Sorry about the toe and the funeral, sounds like a rough week!

Yeah, I've been a bit hesitant to post my feelings about the show, as I didn't want to rub things in since I knew you were missing them today. Show was sold out here as well. I went with 7 friends. 4 said it was the best show they've seen all year. 1 had never even heard Sufjan Stevens before, but said it was the most enjoyable concert he'd seen in ages, and then asked me what albums to buy. I had a blast, it was a ton of fun, and a fantastic performance in general. I had high expectations to begin with, but the show was definitely better than I ever thought it would be.

We had an almost identical setlist to what Imperor posted (one extra new song in the main set than what he got, one less old song in the encore, and we heard an extended version of Jacksonville instead of two he mentioned). I already liked the new album and EP, but I thought the songs worked even better live. The crowd reaction was pretty much night and day different than what some of the early shows mentioned here were like. Sure, the Illinois tracks still received the biggest response, but everyone seemed familiar with the new material, and were even singing and dancing along to most everything. Huge applause for each and every track, etc.

They were selling physical versions of the new EP already (aren't released to stores until next month), so I picked one of those up.

That's great, mofo. No need to hold back. After Impy's review I knew it was going to be stunning.

I figured part of the early disappointment with the show was that people hadn't heard the new record yet and I knew that would change as the tour moved along. I hadn't heard The Suburbs yet when I saw Arcade Fire but they played all the old favorites so it didn't matter, and the new stuff rocked anyway, but I would have been crushed not to have heard anything I recognized until the encores so I can appreciate the Toronto people's response.

Maybe he'll add more shows later that I can catch although I'm not holding my breath.

And after driving around this morning, there's no way I could have driven to Denver and negotiated parking and then walking God knows how far to the venue and possibly standing through the show. No way. That would have been insane, in fact.

Just listened to it for a second time. After the first listen I didn't really like anything. It was more of a wtf is this? But the second listen was much better. Except for a few songs, especially Now That I'm Older, I loved it. Impossible Soul does seem too repetitive and I don't understand the use of autotune but there are some fantastic parts. There really is a lot going on so I'm definitly gonna listen to it a lot more.

I just came back from Sufjan's last concert of the tour and I had a blast. The band was super tight and the new songs all sound even better live. All Delighted People, I Want to Be Well and Impossible Soul are now among the best songs I've ever seen at a concert. The crowd was really into it throughout the show despite him playing basically only new songs (Seven Swans and a funky Chicago being the exception). And I can't fail to mention the amazing stage setup and 3D images with the screen. Cool stuff. Sufjan's neew age persona was really funny and I laughed at all the costumed changes. A great great show, and really different from the last time I saw him (last year). Sufjan is not fucking around.

You know, gang, the percussion in the first leg of "Impossible Soul" makes for some of the best musical moments of the year.
