Michigan-bred singer-songwriter Sufjan Stevens will bring his banjo to Mesa Arts Center on October 22.
"Sufjan himself scheduled the trek, which takes him to some of the continent's most notable venues, like New York's Beacon Theatre and The Chicago Theatre," says Stateside Presents, which is promoting the show. "A pretty big deal!"
Also worth mentioning: Sufjan will actually be playing shows, not just screening his DVD. Details below.
