Dan Deacon @ The Whitney (more)
Dan Deacon

Not long after I posted the Market Hotel show, Todd P updated his site with "Dan Deacon" instead of "secret guest".

The (that used to be) above photo happened after Ryan left the campus.

How is DAN DEACON a "special" guest? Give it up.

As stated in the other thread


"The guest list is already huge. I am hearing through the Todd P grapevine that if you dont get there on the line by 3pm there is no chance you will get in"

Bogus information as usual by the standard pathetic comment-saboteurs who can't book a show to save their fucking lives.
Bravo to ToddP for continuing to book great stuff.

^Shut the fuck up.

If youre going to lie, at least be more believable. 3pm doesnt make any sense.

I hear that rainbows have to shoot out your asshole if you want to get into this show before 10am saturday morning

i hear you have to sing all of the songs ever written by the so-so glows, accapella styliez, if you want to get in.

and then you have to name (in its latin form) every animal mentioned in every song by High Places.

and so on, and so on

I really wish Dan Deacon would go away. He is the definition of annoying.

Posted by A*ROC | March 27, 2008 2:48 PM

yeah, A-Roc, you must be right.

That must explain why he's managed to go from attracting 20 people to his shows a year and half ago to filling 1000 person rooms now.

or maybe you're jealous? Or just an asshole?

I hear you can see the line around the block from space, with the naked eye

to stephen - purveyor of "how is dan deacon a special guest" blah blah blah

you should really try harder to come up with your cynical barbs. this is totally a dud.

come on man, you can do better than that. I believe in you! why not try some snarky comment about "dumb hipsters"? that always works!

I agree with Mr. 1:31pm: the very concept of accepting any offered amount of money between 8 dollars and 20 dollars in exchange for entry to this rock show is the height of whit! ha ha ha! hilarity!

what the hell is happening in the photo?

Posted by Anonymous | March 27, 2008 5:04 PM

the photo is Dan playing acoustic (acapella, actually), on UT campus in Austin

or the photo is Dan giving a lecture to young hucksters on how to use the internet and blogs to make crappy forgettable music seem like it is new and fresh.

the hilarious thing about these people who so very hate Dan Deacon, is they've largely never even hard his music.

the song "Wham City" is easily as complicated and musically ambitious as early Aphex Twin or similar electronica, it just also has a verse.

more obviously, it's about 5 times as complex as the average 4 piece indie-rock band tune.

What these people actually don't like about Dan Deacon is his funny-guy persona. Get over it, he's a charming guy, and music need not be melodramatic or dour to be good.
