Dan Deacon with Ed Schrader's Music Beat, Computer at Sea, Glass Fingers
The art made by Baltimore artist Dan Deacon is about community and how to organize and inspire it. It also often revolves around totally nuts live shows with the audience crowded around Deacon's table of electronic gadgets and noisemakers. He's prone to describing his bouncing, driving, noisy pop as "absurd" and "insane" but his latest album, "Bromst", catapulted him out of the underground and proved that his electro-acoustic compositions could be enriched with live instrumentation and intricate parts to reveal a maturity of songcraft - even if it's still couched in the totally pumped feeling of warping to world 8 and saving the princess on five espressos. Some rad dudes in jean shorts called Ed Schrader's Music Beat join the fray and local gizmo wiz Computer at Sea salvages pop songs and noise fields from a thicket of aftermarket Casios, video game consoles, and handmade electronic devices. Newcomer on the local scene and handpicked by Mr. Deacon himself, South Portland's Glass Fingers opens the night.
