Sufjan Stevens kicked off his holiday tour in Philly (incomplete setlist, videos)

Sufjan Stevens‘ holiday tour, affectionately dubbed “The Surfjohn Stevens Xmas Sing-A-Long Seasonal Affective Disorder Yuletide Disaster Pageant On Ice,” kicked off in Philly at Union Transfer this past Friday and was captured on video by a few YouTubers.

A setlist has been posted to Setlist.fm, but it appears to be incomplete—according to comments and videos of songs that don’t appear on the list. At the very least, the list doesn’t account for the sing-a-longs determined by the “Wheel of Christmas” (see embedded video below). Check out the incomplete setlist below anyway, complete with links to whatever decent videos we could find.

While you’re at it, check out Colin Kerrigan’s awesome pictures for Pitchfork and Chris Silkich’s for The Key. Philly.com’s Dan Deluca was also there and wrote a review of the show.
