Dan Deacon is the king of hummus based avant-garde noise pollution.

I also hate when people make something unique and interesting. Why doesn't he just start a JaMC ripoff band?

His shows are intense. But then he quickly becomes lame and tells you to do stuff. He thinks he's being clever and communal, but its just contrived b/s for drugged out hippiesters. Snoop Dogg and Jay-Z were doing the same stuff back in 2009 when they told you to take off your shirt and wave it in the air.

I hope Dan gives us the speech again about the importance of eating hummus a minimum of 3 times per week.

There was a time, circa 2007, when every other post on brooklynvegan was about Dan Deacon. Don't miss those days.

there was a time, circa 2007, when every other post on brooklynvegan contained ACTUAL comments from ACTUAL music fans that had ACTUAL contributions to the topic of question. oh and they used their ACTUAL names, instead of hiding under the anonymous shield.

Miss those days.

There was a time on May 6, 2011 at 2:56 PM that some fellow made a comment regarding comments and now I would like to comment about his comment on comments.

It's fitting that he played at Merkin Concert Hall as he's wearing a merkin on his chin.

Dan Deacon looks like a big fat baby...that said, his music is pretty fun.

Dan Deacon tries to give out free packages of pita chips and hummus, but because he is an extremely fat fuck. He eats all of it. Thanks, Dan.

i want to discuss the serious issues, like MGMT, MIA and taco trucks

Posted by Richie Deschamps | May 6, 2011 9:46 PM

9:46 - NO ^^ This is about Dan Deacon & possibly the nutritional value of crushed chic peas.

Most of these people are losers. I don't know how you were expecting otherwise.
