The Dan Deacon Show

This past week we had an opportunity to give away a pair of tickets to see Dan Deacon's upcoming show in Madison, and we ended up crafting the entire hour around Deacon and the music of his many friends and collaborators. We played songs from a few of his touring companions, fellow Baltimore denizens and some Wham City collective members, Dan Deacon Ensemble performers, and a handful of other like-minded noise-pop, avant-electro, neo-prog, and indie/punk weirdos. We didn't even have time to explore the more contemporary classical side of Deacon's career, which has seen him collaborate with artists like So Percussion and Kronos Quartet.
