Dan Deacon

Dan Deacon and his ensemble kicked off their current tour at NYU in April. and now they’re back for three NYC shows this weekend. The first, which previously had a TBA location, will be happening in Brooklyn tonight (5/15) at 979 Broadway Backyard (map). Todd P writes

2NITE, early! – a huge outdoor DAN DEACON ENSEMBLE extravaganza, starts early evening in the same HUGE lot under the train in Bushwick where Lightning Bolt played last fall! It’s a beautiful urban outdoor space, & we’ve got an amazing rainout location hooked up directly across the street in that gorgeous old neoclassical bank building “martial arts studio” @ Broadway & Stuyvesant. It’ll be phenomenal, rain or shine!

The second (early with Teeth Mountain opening) and third (late with Future Islands opening) shows are both at Bowery Ballroom on Saturday night (5/16). Both appear to be sold out.

Dan Deacon played with So Percussion at the Brooklyn Masonic Temple show on December 11th, 2008, with the Dirty Projectors. On Friday, May 22nd, So Percussion are scheduled to premiere a new piece by Dan Deacon at Galapagos in Brooklyn. That composition, still a work-in-progress, “may include pouring liquids onstage, amplified coke bottles, and other oddities…” The show is part of the Undiscovered Islands series (which presents a show with violist Nadia Sirota and others, tonight/Friday).
