Sufjan Stevens to tour with BQE screenings

Courtesy: Pitchfork

The BQE, Sufjan Stevens’ moderately insane CD/DVD/comic book/View-Master reel dedication to Brooklyn’s most consistently clogged highway, is out now. But watching the DVD at home, it’s tough to get the same kind of communal charge that you might get from watching the film with a whole crowd of people.

And there’s not much chance you’ll actually get a glimpse of Sufjan himself, unless he randomly stops by your house to borrow a cup of sugar.

Fortunately, folks in five Midwestern cities will get chances to see Stevens himself introduce screenings of The BQE, as the Asthmatic Kitty website reports.
Sufjan won’t actually play any music at these events, though he and the film will share the bill with string quartet Osso and, at three of those dates, bedroom songwriter DM Stith.

Osso is currently touring with screenings of The BQE, though Stevens won’t appear at every show/screening. We’ve got all the Osso dates below; Sufjan himself will be on hand for the Minneapolis, Madison, Indianapolis, and Cincinnati dates, and he could possibly also pop up in Louisville.
