News from the Sufjan front...

Asthmatic Kitty records has sent out a press release citing the release of Stevens' The BQE, 'a visual and musical homage to the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway.' The production was performed back in October 2007 but after much debate Sufjan has decided to release it in DVD form. Asthmatic Kitty writes:

The release date is set for October 20, 2009. The double-disc album will include the original film on DVD, the original soundtrack on CD, a 40-page booklet (with photos and liner notes), and a stereoscopic image reel (aka View-Master®), created by illustrator Stephen Halker.
The limited edition vinyl is available as a double gatefold and includes the soundtrack on 180-gram vinyl, a large-scale 32-page booklet with liner notes and photographs, and a 40-page Hooper Heroes comic book.

You can watch the trailer for The BQE below, but look for it out this fall.
