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).

Dear friends and associates,SaveDaptone.com has collected 310 $4.00 donations so far.
We, the Daptone Family, have been completely overwhelmed by the generosity of the community in response to the burglary of our studio. On the night of February 15th, somebody peeled back the iron gate on our front door, broke in, and stole a lot of equipment and instruments from our studio in Bushwick, Brooklyn. The next day I sent a brief email out to about ten friends asking them to keep a eye out for the stolen gear and for any good deals on loaner equipment to get us by for a while. Within a day, my email had been forwarded to people around the world and had been published on the websites of Brooklyn Vegan, Okay Player, Rolling Stone, Billboard, and the NY Times, as well as numerous blogs and recording gear websites. The response has been unbelievable. We have had hundreds of emails back from people offering to donate and loan gear, studio owners offering free studio time, promoters and organizations offering to help set up benefits and donation programs, and individuals offering financial and moral support. We cannot express how much it has meant to us to see how quickly and to what extent the community has offered us support. It is truly inspirational to know how many people out there feel it is important for us to keep doing what we do.
Naomi Shelton and the Gospel Queens' new full-length record, What Have You Done, My Brother?, will be released by Daptone Records on May 26, 2009.

As you may have heard through the grapevine by now, Daptone was broken into last night. Unfortunately, there was a lot of equipment (mics, pre-amps, monitors, turntables, guitars, amps, computers, etc.) stolen and damaged. It is going to take us a while to go through everything and take full stock of what was stolen, and we are not supposed to touch anything until the cops come back to collect fingerprints so we can only guess what's missing from some mic drawers and cabinets.
And, no, we did not have insurance. We had been shopping around with different companies earlier this month but had not signed a check, so nothing was insured. We are working on replacing the gate in front, installing an alarm system, and getting insurance, but it is President's day so it's not going as quickly as we would have liked.
Nydia's computer was stolen (which wasn't backed up) and the modems/ phone system was ripped out, so we'll be relatively out of commission for a few days.
I would like to ask for everyone's help first in keeping an eye out for all of our stuff showing up on ebay/craigslist/local music shops, and secondly (and more realistically) keeping an eye out for good deals on headphones, mics, pre-amps, etc. I could really use a heads up on any kind of studio package for sale or studio equipment to be possibly bought or borrowed as soon as possible. We have a session scheduled for Friday to lay down some music for (I know this sounds
surreal) Rod Stewart, and I'm going to have to get the studio running by then. I know I'm going to need to find headphones, cables, mics, and pre-amps by then. I'm not sure what else yet.
