Cloudy with a chance of helium

On Monday night I was lucky enough to attend the epic finale of Sufjan Stevens' latest tour. This review sums it up better than I ever could (" seems astonishing—even a little unfair—that someone can be an exceptional musician and composer, a gifted lyricist, dreamboat handsome, and laugh-out-loud funny."), but the highlight of an already spectacular show was the moment when hundreds of giant, helium balloons rained down from the ceiling. From our seats on the mezzanine we couldn't see the nets full of balloons suspended from the ceiling, so it was truly magical when they suddenly filled our view of the stage and the faces of too-cool, bespectacled and bearded hipsters lit up with smiles.

Aren't balloons great?

And finally, the best moment of the night (balloons start around the :30 mark).
