Sufjan Stevens, The Christmas Unicorn

On Tuesday evening I went to Chattanooga to see one of my favorite artists, Sufjan Stevens.  He just released a new Christmas album, Silver & Gold, and played a Christmas show for us!  I had no idea he was even touring, but thankfully while I was out of town my friend, Ryne, texted me about it and picked up a ticket for me. We drove down in the late afternoon to get there in time for doors and left as soon as the show was over.  I even got some studying done in the car (in between sing alongs, of course)!

Occasionally, he would take a break from playing original music and someone would come up and spin the Christmas wheel. Everyone would shout at them and make noise while it was spinning.  Sufjan lead us in a sing-along to the song that the arrow landed on.  It was so fun!  I’m a lost cause if that doesn’t keep me in the Christmas spirit.

Of course, we had to look a little crazy and Christmas-y. Practically everyone had some sort of Christmas themed piece of clothing on. It was really fun to look at all of the sweaters.

What’s gets you in the Christmas spirit?  Christmas day will be here before we know it!

  1. Hi! I love the giant “random christmas song selector” wheel on the stage, what a cute idea. Great to get to meet you this weekend at that blogger to-do, it was a lot of fun!
