Sufjan Stevens

One of our favorite things around here [at Asthmatic Kitty] is seeing our artists meander around the country spreading great music, so you can imagine our giddiness when two of our artists decided to pal up and tagteam an east-of-Lake-Minnentonka tour. The team? Sufjan Stevens and Cryptacize.

We wanted to make this as equitable for all of the fans so there are a few things to read carefully here. Due to the sizes of the venues, tickets will be limited. With that in mind, we wanted to avoid ticket scalpers and ensure that as many fans as possible could attend these shows. Tickets must be picked up at will-call the night of the show (not mailed), tickets are non-transferable and purchaser must present a government-issued photo ID. Also, there is a two ticket limit per purchaser. Thanks for your patience and understanding.

Tickets go on sale Saturday the 15th. We'll post the purchase links on Thursday, but the venues will be handling the purchasing and will turn those on when they can (we have no control over what time Saturday they turn the links "on").

Coincidentally, Sufjan also has a film and corresponding soundtrack about the BQE to be released in October as well. Although this tour has nothing to do with that... [Asthmatic Kitty]

Those tour dates, which kick off September 21st in Philadelphia, end with a four-night NYC run. Two nights at the Bowery Ballroom (October 4th and 5th) and two nights at the Music Hall of Williamsburg (October 6th and 7th). According to Asthamtic Kitty, tickets will go on sale sometime Saturday.

The new dates come after Sufjan's September 12th set at ATP NY, but before his October 24th appearance at the 92YTribeca BQE screening.

Cryptacize last visited NYC in July while on tour with Casiotone for the Painfully Alone.
