“Now that Mr. Deacon has listeners, he has decided to reclaim his artier side — occasionally slowing or abandoning the beat — by performing with Dan Deacon and Ensemble, the 15-member group that made its debut at the Brooklyn Masonic Temple on Thursday night. Half of the set, he announced, would come from his iPod, the other from “actual living humans.” It wasn’t exactly what the crowd wanted.” [NY Times]

But I can assure you, if there were problems onstage, they were not obvious. The crowd was going crazy and seemed unfazed by the new direction Dan had taken. Sure, I noticed one or two times where things seemed to be on the verge of falling out of sync … but everyone kept it together, and the results were amazing. The whole thing is even more astounding when you stop for a second to consider that this was the first time ever this group had played together onstage … and perhaps the third or fourth time they had played together as a full group ever.

So while things may not have been perfect, I think it’s fair to say that Dan’s grand musical experiment was a success. [MTV]
