Dan Deacon & fans @ Fun Fun Fun Fest
FFFFest

Dan Deacon, now signed to Domino (!) for a record due in 2012 (more details TBA), has still got it. Earlier this month, as you can see in the pictures here, I witnessed him play to a giant crowd of rabid fans at Fun Fun Fun Fest. As usual he played from the ground instead of the stage, and luckily with the help of a security guard to shield his equipment from the wild, swaying mass. More pictures are below.

Later that same day, Dan performed again, but on a stage (the Yellow Stage to be exact) as part of the Wham City Comedy Tour that has now arrived in NYC for a show at 285 Kent tonight...

Last but not least, Dan is one of a few artists who have contributed tracks to a free holiday album that Carpark is releasing on 12/6. The full tracklist and more details on that are also below...

I've seen Dan Deacon with and without the ensemble, both were great shows in different ways.

Socially he's pretty quiet, which is the opposite of his musically.

Bromst was a great album, miles ahead of his previous ones. Presently I look forward to any of his projects.

"Socially he's pretty quiet, which is the opposite of his musically."

I think a lot of artists fall under this category. It's just that it doesn't really occur to people that this happens more often than you would think.

is Dan Deacon gay? (serious question)

Posted by Anonymous | November 18, 2011 12:58 PM

I'm not sure what there is to explain.
He seemed like a pretty inward, quiet guy the couple of times I've seen him in person. Which is the opposite of how his music is.

He does wear tshirts too small though.

At least when people give out the hate to this guy, it's at least somewhat creative. The metal articles only get those ever-so-predictable sausage comments.

It's hard for me to hate on a man that eats hummus a minimum of 3 times per week.
