Ten years ago, Jónsi of Sigur Rós partnered with musician Alex Somers to record an ambient album, Riceboy Sleeps. This year, Jónsi and Alex celebrated a decade of Riceboy Sleeps by taking it on the road with an orchestra in a tour that stopped at the Lincoln Theatre in DC recently. Jason Nicholson shot the show.
