Sufjan Stevens – awesome!

Absolutely fantastic gig – imagine if Wiliiam Blake reincarnated as a nerdy, over-intelligent kid with hippie parents and grew into a beautiful multi-instrumentalist with a wry sense of humour and great pop sensibility. Wow.

Cobweb delicacy, complex dynamic soundscapes and groove – we had it all last night. Genius. Really. This ranks up right up there with the best gigs I have ever been to.

Here is an Independent review from the London gig, which is longer than mine, but equally starstruck. The conclusion is the same as mine, after the first song already: Mindblowing.

There was a fantastic stage show and trippy visuals, too. Afterwards, when the audience had been in a bouncing sea of balloons for the encore, lots of people milled about the streets still carrying balloons. We could easily identify each other and chat excitedly about the gig.
