If you are one of the lucky ones, who got tickets to see The Surfjohn Stevens Christmas Sing-A-Long, you are in for a treat.  If you didn't and think you can go get a pair tickets at the door, well you are out of luck because the show is sold out

However, Sufjan Stevens has an early Christmas present just for you, and you don't need tickets.  Stevens decided to take some of his Christmas tunes from his amazing Silver & Gold: Songs for Christmas box set and give them a little hip hop flavor with the help of some rappers and producers.  This holiday creation is called Chooped & Scrooged (get it), and it features guest verses from Heems (formerly of Das Racist), bounce artist Nicky Da B, Busdriver, and others.  Check it out below and download it for free here.
