Sufjan Stevens/Cold Specks 

When: Thu., April 16, 8 p.m. 2015
Price: $40
If you paid any attention at all the explosive indie rock scene of the 2000s, you’re plenty well versed in the musical stylings of one Sufjan Stevens. You even know how to pronounce his name. You also, without hesitation, can elucidate the differences between the “Adult Contemporary Easy Listening Version and the “Multiple Personality Disorder Version” of his picaresque 2005 hit, “Chicago.” You also have a preferred version thereof. All of which is to say that Sufjan Stevens has built a formidable canon for vets and rookies alike, and his performance tonight will illuminate all of that. Just a few weeks ago,” Sufjan released the sparse and lovely Carrie & Lowell. “Fourth of July,” for instance, covers Sufjan’s iconic imaginative poetry overlaid across a gentle, 20,000-leagues-under-the-sea keys melody.
