"Stetson demolishes clichés to unleash fresh, unexpected energies. It's like being inside an enormous brass tunnel full of windy byways and slamming valves, at once exhilarating and frightening," writes a Pitchfork reviewer. In addition to releasing three critically acclaimed solo albums, Stetson has performed, toured, or recorded with dozens of artists, including The Arcade Fire, Bon Iver, Tom Waits, Laurie Anderson, Lou Reed, and Angelique Kidjo. Opening act is Chicago-based avant-garde trumpeter Justin Walter, whose electronic valve instrument is a hybrid trumpet and analog synthesizer.
