man-of-metropolis

This video of a Sufjan Stevens concert in Toronto in 2005 popped up on YouTube today. I don’t know much of anything about Sufjan concert bootlegs to know what the history of this one is. The audio quality isn’t the greatest. Here’s what I see of the setlist from skimming through it:

  1. To Be Alone With You
  2. The 50 States Song
  3. The Tallest Man, the Broadest Shoulders
  4. Prairie Fire That Wanders About
  5. Decatur
  6. Casimir Pulaski Day
  7. A Good Man Is Hard To Find
  8. The Predatory Wasp of the Palisades Is Out To Get Us!
  9. Redford
  10. Chicago
  11. The Man of Metropolis Steals Our Hearts
  12. Abraham
  13. All The Trees of the Field Will Clap Their Hands
