Sufjan Is Coming Back

In what is genuinely surprising news, Sydney’s Vivid Festival has announced today the first act of their 2012 lineup, and it is none other than Sufjan Stevens. Given that Sufjan toured Australian last year you could have been forgiven for thinking that he wouldn’t be making it back out our way for a while, but this news will no doubt be welcomed by hardcore fans as well as those who missed his tour last year.

Gig Review: Neon Indian @ The Prince Bandroom, 24th February

Neon Indian at the Prince Bandroom last night was obviously not one of those gigs.
