I was told each of the five sold-out nights at Bowery would have a different theme. Saturday was “Pep Rally Night.” Another night will be “Fake Injury Night.”
The band opened with a cheer before launching into “The 50 States Song.” I don’t have the full setlist, but allegedly Sufjan’s changing it up each night, which is good ’cause I’ll be back on Tuesday. Hopefully that will be “Free Beer” night.
Oh, and I finally figured out why there is a goat on the album cover: read the wiki.
