Sufjan Stevens Australian Tour

Okay it's not funny anymore.

When Wilco announced that they will be touring Australia sometime in March, we took it like men, mainly cause it was nearly a good two months away from BDO so we could just casually throw the notion away based on that. Then there was the Laneway Festival that rolls into Melbourne less than a month after we head out, and as we've reported, the lineup is pretty stellar as well.

And then just yesterday, the Sydney festival was announced featuring no less than Brian Wilson (playing Pet Sounds in its entirety, dear lord), The National and Joanna Newsom playing in various venues all around Sydney. But hey, it's S-Y-D-N-E-Y, and we are heading to M-E-L-B-O-U-R-N-E, so it's okay. Seriously it was.

But today, today, it is announced that Sufjan Stevens will be touring Australia for the first time, complete with a full band which includes a wind and brass ensemble, rolling into Melbourne - a week before we touch down.

Okay this is too much and I have just about had it. BDO's second announcement better feature The Smashing Pumkins, Manics, Interpol, The Polyphonic Spree, Jesus and Mary Chain and every damn rumored act with The Boss and his E-Street band in tow for an onstage appearance with The Arcade Fire on 'Keep the Car Running'.

If not I am going to be seriously very pissed. And when I am pissed, I go to the toilet.
