Gig Review: Sufjan Stevens | And Pluck Your Strings

Gig Review: Sufjan Stevens | And Pluck Your Strings | Sufjan Stevens Sydney Festival 2011 | Scoop.it
Sufjan Stevens is basically my favourite person in the world, and I travelled up to Sydney from Melbourne for the sole purpose of seeing him play at the Opera House. Naturally, I thought this show was pretty much the best thing ever. It was utterly and completely beautiful. It was as close to magic as music can get. But yet it was also thoroughly over-the-top, almost to the point of absurdity at times. Such are the fascinating contradictions of both the man and his music. This constant friction between the two sides of Sufjan’s music was only one of the many elements that made this show as enthralling as it was.

Timber and Steel Review

Timber and Steel Review | Sufjan Stevens Sydney Festival 2011 | Scoop.it
Even through the height of his Illinois-based popularity I have never seen Sufjan Stevens live before, so his inclusion in this year’s Sydney Festival lineup immediately shot him to the top of my must-see-gigs-of-2011 list. I’d been a little wary of Steven’s lastest album The Age of Ads with all its bombast and electro flourishes (despite all the press Timber and Steel gave the album I still haven’t fully warmed to it) but was resigned to the fact that the show would probably focus on the new material over his softer, folkier back catalogue. And from his appearance on Jimmy Fallon late last year I also expected fluro, Lots of fluro.
