I just watched Sufjan Stevens on PBS's Austin City Limits and I'm still in awe. At this point of my college education I still do not have a vocabulary that is extensive enough to describe how amazing it was.

Granted it was kind of hard to enjoy with the 20+ people constantly asking, "Why does he have wings on his back?"

To which I responded, "Because he's Sufjan! He can do whatever he wants."

Honestly! How could anyone make fun of someone who includes a celesta in his live act? Or laugh at a musician who plays no less than 4 instruments in as many songs (piano, guitar, banjo, and jingle bells)?

Some people just do not understand art.
