Dan Deacon Is A Crayola Man

Crayola’s already discovered the childlike wonder of Animal Collective, so it’s not surprising they chose the sounds of the hypercolorful, banana-iPod toting hipster cheerleader Dan Deacon for their latest campaign. (Also, the product is The Glow Station and Dan loves his glowing green skull so really what took you so long, Crayola.) It is however… More »

Dan Deacon Banged On A Can @ World Financial Center, NYC 6/1/08

Along with Apes & Androids and Wire, this weekend’s barrage of live music in the city featured another year of the Bang On A Can marathon, stretching over twelve hours at the World Financial Center from 6PM Saturday to 6AM Sunday and including performances from Marnie Stern, Owen Pallett, and Dan Deacon. The good Deacon’… More »

New Dan Deacon Video – “Okie Dokie”

This image shuffling David Hughes-directed video for Dan Deacon’s “Okie Dokie” does a good job shifting the energy of his live shows into a stream-of-conscious kaleidoscopic mindfuck. OK, instead of “mindfuck,” let’s say art-school project. We kid! If you try piecing things together into a coherent narrative, you may just earn a Ph.D. What seem… More »

Dan Deacon Gets Hipsters To Dance At The Whitney

Dan Deacon lugged his duct-taped Casio electronics and Sally Jessy specs to NY’s Whitney Museum of American Art this past Friday as part of the Whitney Live series, getting the kids to do the famed “Ethan Hawke!” and “Gattaca!” countdown. Then, of course, they danced.

You can see more clips here. Nothing… More »

Stereogum’s 30 Favorite Live Shows Of 2007

We saw a lot of concerts this year! You probably did too, if you’re the sort to be checking music blogs on your downtime over holiday break, so let’s all trade notes. Stereogum’s Amrit Singh kicks things off with a detailed, list-friendly recap of the earplug-necessitating, beer-soaked year that was.

Your Friend, Andrew W.K. & Our CMJ Superlatives

CMJ 2007 will be remembered for … not a lot, sadly. And not just ’cause everybody was boozed up. Folks will probably hold on to how it was every bit as exhausting as years past but not every bit as exciting, and the hype-train surrounding Black Kids, particularly as we wait to see how it… More »

CMJ Party School! With Stereogum And Andrew W.K. (Part Two: Backstage At Bowery)

With the help of Andrew, we’ve already uncovered what partying at CMJ’s like for the fest folks parading around the Lower East Side; for the second and final installment of the Stereogum + Andrew W.K. Study of Partying at CMJ, we introduced Andrew to the bands on the stacked Windish Agency Showcase lineup at BoweryMore »

Stereogum Does CMJ: Dan Deacon Parts The Party At Bowery Ballroom

At last night’s Windish Showcase Dan Deacon got our sweaty selves hyped with group shouts of “Ethan Hawke!” and “Gattaca!” then screwed our minds with his signature strobes, green skull, and iPod-taped-to-a-banana (this has made Dan a person of interest to airport security … really). So what better way to end the blog day –… More »

Stereogum Does CMJ: Ponytail/White Williams/No Age/Dan Deacon/Deerhunter @ Bowery Ballroom, NYC 10/17/07 (Windish Agency Showcase)

Left to right: Andrew W.K., Bradford Cox.

Right, so let us explain. When the CMJ scheds first came out, the Windish Agency showcase at Bowery immediately stood out as the night with most party potential. Band to watch No Age? Band to watch White Williams? Dan Deacon? So, who better to… More »

Tay Zonday/Dan Deacon/Girl Talk @ First Ave, Minneapolis 10/9/07

Difficult to do anything aside from IM and email about here on what feels like Christmas morning, and it makes us feel dirty to post anything when all we’re thinking is In Rainbows … but we’ve gotta start the non-Radiohead stuff somewhere … and what more poetic place to start than right here: From the… More »

Girl Talk Talks Tay Zonday

All it takes these days is telling a newscaster that you like turtles, and a few clicks later, your internet ubiquity has been cemented: Welcome to your 15 megabytes of fame! And just maybe, once you cross the 5 million view mark on YouTube, you’ll get to open for the reigning pied piper and court… More »

Dan Deacon/Deerhunter @ A Warehouse In Chicago 7/16/07 (& Pitchfork Festival Pics)

Still tired from our Chicago trip this weekend, and really it’s all this 2AM show’s fault. Word floated through the Pitchfork Festival on Sunday that a warehouse at Wolcott and Walnut (mnemonic device of the day: “Think ‘Wall’ … then think ‘CotNut'”) would host the two acts accused of “stealing the festival” this year for… More »

Pitchfork Music Festival 2007 [Sunday; 7/15] Rating: 6.2

Wouldn’t be a series of Pitchfork scores without at least one bearing little-to-no relation to the verbiage that followed, right? Well, day last of this year’s P4K party in Union Park was another fine one, bringing two more mind-bending sets, and ending (for us) on a perfect note. A perfectly triggered sample, really… More »

Dan Deacon Talks Videogames, Rice Krispie Treats, Garnier Fructus

In one of the best interviews we’ve read in the past three hours, Ignore Magazine asks Baltimore’s hottest future shocker a bunch of brilliantly dumb questions. You should read the whole thing here, but … some highlights:You look like you play a lot of video games. What is your favorite TurboGrafx-16 game and why didMore »

Dan Deacon/Erase Errata/Mark Ronson/The Octopus Project @ McCarren Park Pool, Brooklyn 7/8/07

The McCarren Pool continued its reign as the finest spot to be in NYC on a summer Sunday yesterday, JellyNYC bringing together Dan Deacon fans and slip ‘n’ slide riders of all shapes and sizes to the emptied, concrete construct for a full slate of good times at a bargain basement price (free, just like… More »

New Dan Deacon Video – “The Crystal Cat”

If you don’t like Dan Deacon yet, or are mildly prone to epileptic fits, scroll on. Charm City polarizer Dan Deacon enlisted Jimmy Jo Roche to produce the first vid from Spiderman Of The Rings, pulling some footage (but no punches) from his typically batshit-insane live show, mixed with the sort of devil-horns-in-front-of-an-American-flag nonsense that’ll… More »

Dan Deacon @ Mercury Lounge, NYC 5/12/07

He may look like he’d be the most awkward kid in the room, but Baltimore’s electro-animaniac Dan Deacon is a charmer. As per his custom, Deacon set his rig of pedals, keys, lightbulbs, and discman in front of the stage, flipping the show-going script for those who chose it; some stood on stage looking over… More »

New Dan Deacon – “Snake Mistakes”

Take a look at the pic below; kids, this is what happens when your left brain is left unchecked and imbalanced. Maybe that shot will make it difficult to believe Dan Deacon’s a classically trained composer, but his spastic electronic party blasts do contain a modicum or order and logic, a voice of some reason,… More »
