Show Announcements: Sufjan Stevens, Interpol, Yells At Eels, Video, Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin, Wolf Parade, Will Johnson, More.
Sufjan Stevens didn't get too far in his attempt to write an album for each state in the US.
Of the 50, he completed two--and then he kind of disappeared for a few years after the release of his Christmas album in 2006.
Maybe if he hadn't put more than 20 songs on each of his last two records, he would've gotten a bit closer to completing the collection.
Recently, though, he said he was giving up on his project--in tandem with contemplating quitting music altogether. That didn't exactly paint a bright future for the songwriter's career. But now he's back, and he'll be passing through town on Wednesday, October 20, for a performance at McFarlin Auditorium. Pre-sale tickets are available at Asthmatic Kitty for $35.
In local show announcement news, Rubber Gloves Rehearsal Studios will be holding a Cats and Dogs Benefit for the Denton Humane Society on Saturday, September 11, featuring Shiny Around The Edges, Dust Congress, Brent Best, Chris Flemmons and many more. Tickets will be $6, and the doors open at 2 p.m.
