The Beacon of Deacon

So saw Dan Deacon at the ULU last week and due to unfortunate events have been unable to write it up until now. But shit me! It was immense! I saw him a couple of years back in a small venue so wondered how he'd translate his on big on-floor presence to stage, but he did it in full style. He worked the crowd like they were radio controlled, making them have dance offs and conga out of the building! It's like he was some sort of electro deity in a house of worship or something! Anyway – go see him ASAP. You won't regret it. Backing up the Deacs was Wham City, which was made up out of the three support acts of Future Islands, Teeth Mountain and Adventure. I've posted a song from each below. Future Islands were like a kids party on eurovision, great energy and great fun. I missed Teeth Mountain, but was VERY impressed with their lady drummer, also liking their mix of native American trance and electronica. You can see them at Barden's Boudoir tonight if you're able. The lovely Benny who I met after the show made up Adventure. His game/dance music puts a smile on your face and a tap in your toe. All for now.

Dan Deacon – Woof Woof
Future Islands – Pinnochio
Teeth Mountain – Ghost Science
Adventure – Poison Diamonds
