Indie-folk god Sufjan Stevens announced today that he would be embarking on an exceptionally intimate fall tour in parts of Canada and the Eastern United States. The tour kicks off at All Tomorrow’s Parties New York, in Monticello, NY, and while that, admittedly isn’t too tiny a venue (also showcasing The Flaming Lips, Black Moth Super Rainbow, Deerhunter, and Animal Collective, among others), the rest of them on the itinerary, like the Music Hall of Williamsburg or the Bowery Ballroom in NYC and Castaways in Ithaca, are.

At these smaller shows, Sufjan will be supported by Asthmatic Kitty labelmates Cryptacize, whose latest album dropped earlier this year. Here’s a full list of the venues they’ll be hitting:

09/12 Monticello, NY @ ATP New York
09/21 Philadelphia, PA @ Johnny Brenda’s
09/22 Philadelphia, PA @ Johnny Brenda’s
09/23 Ithaca, NY @ Castaways

[…] While making it clear that he won’t be retiring, Sufjan Stevens has recently bared his concerns and misgivings regarding the creative process, as reported by Stereogum. Stevens said in a recent interview with Vish Khanna that while he is famous for his epic endevours regarding the production of albums, they never really start out as the odysseys that they eventually turn into. Sufjan also put to bed the rumors that swirled regarding the possibility of his retirement, explaining that, “I would never explicitly say something like that. But I definitely feel like ‘What is the point? What’s the point of making music anymore?’” Excuse our skepticism, but you’re making us a little nervous, Sufjan.
