Sufjan Stevens at Bass Concert Hall. From definitive indie albums to multiple holiday-themed records to last year’s hip-hop side-project Sisyphus, Sufjan Stevens has strayed far and wide in his 15-year recording career. His new release, “Carrie & Lowell,” a comparatively straightforward acoustic effort that deals largely with Stevens’ late mother and his stepfather, is arguably his deepest work to date. Tuesday’s show is sold out, but tickets are available for Wednesday. Moses Sumney opens both nights. $35-$40. 7:30 p.m. 2300 Robert Dedman Drive. texasperformingarts.org. — P.B.
