There’s no party like a Dan Deacon party

Watching a Dan Deacon show isn’t really about the music. For the first part of the Dan Deacon and the Wham City Ensemble gig, it seemed like that he had just aimed a bit too high. While Bromst is an amazing album, here were too many silly vocal effects that ruined the live interpretation of the songs.

However, part way of the show the atmosphere changed. It didn’t matter any more that you couldn’t really see the stage, but the whole gig was an experience instead. From asking the audience to touch the head of the person in front of them and squeezing against the wall to create a large circle, everyone was just under the spell of Dan Deacon.
