Dan Deacon (With Interview At End)

May 19th, 2009

Episode 134 of 429 episodes

Dan Deacon has built his reputation on live shows: comically unpredictable messes of frenetic dancing, audience participation and theatrics, all powered by the Baltimore resident's wildly addictive electro-freak-pop. Since getting his start in 2003, Deacon has always performed alone. But for his latest tour, he's joined by a 15-piece backing band. Deacon conducts the traveling orchestra from the dance floor, where he plants himself in the audience with a tangle of cables, analog drum machines and vintage electronics. This concert, from the 9:30 Club in Washington, DC was recorded and webcast live on May 17, 2009.
