sufjan - austin city limits

I apologize that I didn't announce this since I knew about it way ahead of time, but Sufjan Stevens was on Austin City Limits last night, followed by Calexico. It was past my bedtime, so I had to tape it. He did only four songs, mainly because his arrangements are so expansive that there isn't enough time to rush through a 7-song set. I was hoping for "Predatory Wasp" or "The Transfiguration", which were the best at the Atlanta show I went to (see this post).

If you missed it, they posted "Casimir Pulaski Day" on the ACL site here, and then a fairly lengthy interview clip here. I'm sure it'll end up on YouTube at some point, so I'll keep my eyes peeled.

Already hoping that this might be in my stocking this year!

Update: Here's a (shaky) video of the song "Predatory Wasp", which I wish would have been on ACL!
