You can't have a music revival without a Deacon

To follow up Jordan's Dan Deacon post, the show was AMAZING. Or as Dan himself might say, "as sassy as if you were wearing a huge purple this thing is so big that people wonder how you even fit in your car, it's that sassy."

Deacon began his set by inviting everyone to herd onto the stage and requesting that the movie screen be lowered so we would all be enclosed in an intimate space about the size of a bedroom. After a brief soundcheck, he led a countdown to his first song (20-16 dejected voice, 15-11 silent interpretive dance, 10-1 supersassy) and I don't think I stopped smiling for the next hour or so, which included a spazz-dance circle, several funny Dan tales like the story of how he and Shaq team up to embarass Michael Jordan by renting Space Jam whenever the three of them go to the video store, a handholding group apology to one of his friends for losing some of his Netflix movies, choir robes and lyric sheets for a group singalong to "Wham City," and of course some booty-shakin' music. A friend of a friend was capturing the whole thing on video and I hope he'll make it available for public viewing.

To conclude, don't miss Dan Deacon if you have the opportunity to see him live. Trust me, you won't regret it.

I'm already having feverish dreams about how good it will be to watch that video.

I wish I wasn't broke and dealing with stuff Monday night from the pictures it looked super fun.
