Dan Deacon @ Bowery Ballroom - 11/16/12

Dan Deacon Ensemble

Dan Deacon brought his ongoing tour to NYC last week for shows at Music Hall of Williamsburg (11/14) and Bowery Ballroom (11/16). Dan, who is from Long Island, turned both shows into benefit shows to aid relief efforts from Hurricane Sandy.

Dan has been touring behind his new album, America, and played much of the material from that release at his NYC shows, where he also brought his usual dance-floor-commanding antics. We caught the Bowery Ballroom show, and pictures from that show (including openers Height with Friends, Chester Endersby Gwazda, and Alan Resnick) are in this post.

More below.

Dan Deacon

Yesterday, we mentioned that Dan Deacon expanded his tour to include a NYC show, which happens on November 14 at Music Hall of WIlliamsburg. It's since been revealed that he'll also play November 16 at Bowery Ballroom. Both of those shows are part of the leg of the tour which sees the Dan Deacon Ensemble will be performing with support from Height With Friends, Chester Endersby Gwazda, and Alan Resnick. Tickets for both NYC shows go on sale Friday (7/20) at noon with an AmEx presale starting Wednesday (7/18) at noon.

We recently mentioned on BV Austin that Dan Deacon recorded a version of "Call Me Maybe" dubbed "Call Me Maybe Acapella 147 Times Exponentially Layered." You can purchase it for $1 on bandcamp or stream it below along with an updated list of dates.

Dan Deacon at Pier 84 last week (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Dan Deacon

You may have noticed that about a month ago, Music Hall of Williamsburg's website posted a Dan Deacon show, but quickly removed it. That was presumably not to compete with the free River Rocks show on Pier 84 that Dan just played because now that that's over, it's been re-announced that Dan Deacon will play Music Hall of Williamsburg on November 14.

The show is part of his previously discussed tour where the Dan Deacon Ensemble will be performing with support from Height With Friends, Chester Endersby Gwazda, and Alan Resnick. Tickets for the Brooklyn show go on sale Friday (7/20) at noon with an AmEx presale starting Wednesday (7/18) at noon.

A list of updated dates and streams of "Lots" and "True Thrush" from Dan Deacon's upcoming America LP are below...

Andrew WK and Nardwuar

Andrew WK takes to the stage of Santos Party House, the club he partially owns, this Thursday, May 28th for a show with Cherie Lily, Height with Friends, Ed Schrader, DJ Dog Dick, Ana Lola Romanhas and host Aleister X. Also appearing will be Julia, Samuel and Bad Brilliance. Tickets are on sale.

That event is a release party of sorts for the first record from Andrew WK's Skyscraper Music Maker label. That compilation, DAMN! The Mixtape Vol. 1, released on May 25th, features "Andrew's work as a producer for Skyscraper Music Maker artists, Bad Brilliance, Aleister X, and more." Check out a streaming sample at RCDLBL, and a trailer for it, along with the video for Bad Brilliance's "It's So Fun" (remixed by AWK), below.

This September, Skyscraper Music Maker (with its partner Cargo Records) will release Andrew WK's new record, 55 Cadillac, a disc of solo piano improvisations. There's an advertisement/preview video for the disc, also below.

Just a few days ago, Andrew WK started his own Twitter, and already he's been dropping news bits (and trying to get people to call him). Along with more prosaic observations about pizza and dusty Diet Coke, Andrew announced that his 2006 overseas-only album, delayed previously because of contractual obligations, will finally be see US release, as well as new disc(?) Young Lord. He writes, "Close Calls With Brick Walls is coming in the winter and Young Lord is next!"

Andrew WK is releasing material sooner than that even. Nardwuar, the Canadian music personality, is putting out a 7-inch on June 23rd called A Wild Pear! split between his own band, The Evaporators, and Andrew WK. The CD release party for that EP is part of a larger Andrew WK summer Canadian tour coming in June. That tour includes Sled Island Fest in June, and more shows with The Evaporators (who killed it at SXSW this year). All dates below.

Non-Canadians get Andrew WK love this summer too, as his new TV show, DESTROY BUILD DESTROY, is premiering on Cartoon Network on June 20th. The program is "a game show involving teenagers and 100 foot high explosions, quadruple wide fire-balls, and the will to create from the ashes!" Check out a preview for that below.

All above mentioned videos, show posters, and a "Learn How to Play Andrew WK songs" clip hosted by WK himself, below...
