[one_fifth][/one_fifth][three_fifth]We’ve got even more exciting news from Sufjan Stevens and Asthmatic Kitty! In support of Silver & Gold, his new Christmas boxset, they’ve just announced “The Sirfjam Stephanapolous Christmas Sing-A-Long Seasonal Affective Disorder Spectacular Music Pageant Variety Show Disaster”, a U.S. tour with a 5-piece band that includes the lovely Rosie Thomas, Nedelle Torissi, Casey Foubert, James McAlister, and Ben Lanz. They’ll be playing all the hits from both Christmas box sets and are taking in song requests! The show will consisst entirely of Christmas music and audience participation is HIGHLY encouraged. “Song sheets will be provided. There should be plenty of low-production props and gags, dollar-store giveaways, inflatable unicorns, cheap confetti, make-shift costumes, and Gloria in excelsis deo. Wear a santa hat, bring a flask (and a friend) and join the Sufjan Christmas Spectacular Sing-a-long in drunken revelry.”
