Dan Deacon is here, announces fall solo & comedy tours
Dan Deacon @ FYF Fest 2011 (more by Nathanael Turner)
Jeffrey Lewis, Lady Lamb The Beekeeper, and Emperor X play a show that starts at 8pm at Maxwell's in Hoboken tonight (9/21). Dan Deacon then takes over the club for a late Wednesday night show that starts at 11pm. It's a one-off for Dan who will hit the road proper in late October, playing both solo and Wham City comedy shows through 11/19, and then again for a few days at the beginning of December.
The "Wham City Comedy Tour 2011" hits 285 Kent in Brooklyn on 11/18, right before the tour ends back in Baltimore. What is the Wham City Comedy Tour? Well, "Their two-hour bat-shit variety show covers experimental theater, performance art, video, and stand-up." You might have caught it when it came to NYC in 2010. Video trailer (and dates) below.
Last week Dan reissued some stuff...
Deacon dug into the vaults and reissued two of his early LPs, Meetle Mice and Silly Hat Vs. Eagle Hat, on double LP via Carpark Records on Sept. 13. Also, limited cassette versions of Meetle, Silly as well as Spiderman of the Rings and Bromst will be issued and made available at shows and on the Carpark online shop. In October, Carpark will also reissue Spiderman of the Rings on LP
