Dan Deacon: Go Go Gadget rock!

Dan Deacon is Baltimore's finest arty-synthy-singer nerd. When Deacon leaves his "Wham City" home, he hauls along two suitcases worth of computer gadgets, city to city, pulling together an unbelievably electric performance of Future Rock from its contents.

Maybe the hardest working man in showbiz, Deacon has released eight albums in the last four years, and has played hundreds upon hundreds of shows within that span. This guy ain't no dummy either; he holds a Masters degree in Electro-Acoustic Composition.

In other words, his entirely strange music of crazily mashed up beats and dumb, oddball sounds is actually kind of smart. There's definitely a strong sense of humor at play when Deacon takes the stage. He knows the spazzy video game music he makes is somewhat absurd, yet we both know it's also delightful. If you can give in to the spectacle, and cast aside your cynicism, you're guaranteed to have a good time at a Dan Deacon show.

Dan Deacon plays two Brooklyn shows (McCarren Park Pool & Death By Audio) on Sunday, July 8th.
