Sufjan Stevens brought his The Surfjohn Stevens Christmas Sing-A-Long Seasonal Affective Disorder Yuletide Disaster Pageant On Ice tour with comedian "Sheila Saputo" (aka singer-songwriter Rosie Thomas) to NYC last week for shows at Bowery Ballroom on Friday (12/21) and Saturday (12/22), the final two nights of the tour. Like the other shows on the tour, he played a long set of mostly Christmas songs and then returned for an encore of Sufjan classics. It was a wild, confetti-filled holiday celebration and pictures from the second night of his NYC run are in this post. More, along with the setlist from night one, below...

hey guys, I'm really going out on a limb here, but I would venture to say that Eugene might have been joking around just a little bit. I could be wrong though.
