Sufjan Stevens continues to tour in support of this year's intimate, heartbreaking Carrie & Lowell. He already played three NYC shows earlier in the year, and on Halloween he was nearby NYC for a Jersey City show at Loews Jersey Theatre. He and his band played mostly off the new album with a few other career-spanning favorites, and Sufjan ended the set by bringing out opener Gallant to cover Drake's unstoppable "Hotline Bling" in front of a giant backdrop of Drake's face. (He did it in Baltimore the next night too.)
