Philadelphia 2012 [no label, 2CD]

Opening night Christmas tour. Live at the Union Transfer, Philadelphia, PA; November 23, 2012. Very good audience recording.

Since 2001, Sufjan Stevens has been entertaining his fans with his Christmas singles. These have been collected into Songs For Christmas (2001-2006) and Silver & Gold: Songs for Christmas, Vols. 6–10 (2006-2010). And his Christmas shows are a riot of fun.

Thanks to docrupard for sharing the tracks at Dime.

The Doc noted:

I recorded this one a year ago, then did not get around to seeding it, so this is my belated 2012/early 2013 Christmas present to you. This was the opening night of “The Surfjohn Stevens Christmas Sing-A-Long: Seasonal Affective Disorder Yuletide Disaster Pageant On Ice” 2012 Tour, and the concert is pretty much a disaster as billed; it seemed that Soufie and Band were winging it most of the time, as he readily admits on stage. That actually made it very personal and a lot of fun. If you listen carefully, you can hear my daughter “call” Sister Winter before Sufjan plays a note.
