Who the hell is Dan Deacon?
The show I went to on Tuesday night gave me a glimpse into this unique electronic/noise artist’s fan base and live performance routine. Now, a Dan Deacon show isn’t for the faint of heart, throughout the show everyone in the audience was encouraged to create a large and violent dance off in the middle of the floor. If you don’t like being put on the spot in front of hundreds of people then this probably isn’t the show for you. At one point the entire audience created a human tunnel that went outside, around the block and back into the venue with everyone cheering each other on.
I felt a great sense of camaraderie among the crowd, even if you don’t enjoy Dan’s music, which is at times difficult to take in, the show was awesome and i loved being around such a high energy crowd.
Like this guy,
