Would he draw enough at the NAC? The Swell Season might (largely due to how well known "Once" is), but I don't think Sufjan Stevens is a big enough name for it.

Aloha,

Sufjan is pretty great. I'm a fan. However, I think NAC might be a bit ambitious. If i'm not mistaken, I think he played the National last time he was in Montreal, and that's certainly a step or 3 down from NAC in terms of capacity and booking cost.

actually, a bit of googling shows me that capacity of the National is 850 with people standing and the back of the room cleared out (which I've never seen happen there), which is about 250 more than I thought it was. What's capacity at NAC?

i have pristine audio of a toronto show from a few years ago, it's incredible. i'll post it on monday.

That was recorded at Lee's palace and was broadcast on CBC. I think you can still find it on the RAdio 3 archives.

Sufjan is an incredible artist, with mad ambition, but it look like he's faltered a little in the last few years. Greeting from Michigan is a great album, but Illinoise is the swan song... although he does have an album called Seven Swans, but that's beside the point.

Does he still plan to do one album per state?
