Sufjan Stevens goes on Christmas sing-a-long tour because he’s silly like that

Sufjan Stevens goes on Christmas sing-a-long tour because he’s silly like that

Some indie music blog is like — Sufjan Stevens is going on tour to support his Silver & Gold: Songs for Christmas CD box set that is due on November 13 from Asthmatic Kitty.

I’m like — It’s called “The Surfjohn Stevens Christmas Sing-A-Long: Seasonal Affective Disorder Yuletide Pageant On Ice.” You slay me Surfjohn, and you understand humor so well. You should put out a comedy album box set with silly artwork and stickers.

Conglomerate website is like — Oh, I hope he’s doing something with Kitty Pride. We’re funny, too, like Surfjohn!

Hipster from 2008 is like — I hope he plays “The Transfiguration,” but he won’t. I listened to Seven Swans.

Satanic family is like — This seems like the perfect holiday event. Anything dripping with this much irony during the Birth of Christ Day must be Satanic. Let’s go!

Rosie Thomas is like — I’ve collaborated with Surfjohn before and I’ll be opening up on his tour as Sheila Saputo. Isn’t that weird and wacky? I got it from Surfjohn!
