The Crofoot is honored to work again with Dan Deacon at a great alternative art and performance space - the CONTEMPORARY ART INSTITUTE OF DETROIT. And this time we're gonna take advantage of the great outdoors! Note the early doortime!

DAN DEACON has garnered a reputation in the underground as an intense performer and classic showman. His tabletop, full of pedals, a sine wave generator, vocoder and casio blasting through the PA, joined by a makeshift light board with various bulbs and green skull strobe light, make his all out dance-til-you-drop performance a complete experience. His live shows are especially notorious for its frenzied crowds.

But it isn’t all fancy feet and bouncy beats. Deacon is a classically trained composer with a Masters degree in electro-acoustic composition. He has released 7 albums from 2003 to 2006, but those self-produced recordings do not contain the vocal based experimental pop that he has fine-tuned in live performance. His latest full length, ‘Spiderman of the Rings’ is the first album bridging the gap between party performer and genuine composer. A mixture of his live show dance anthems, intricate instrumentals and epic psychedelics, ‘Spiderman of the Rings’ establishes Dan Deacon as a new direction in the contemporary underground.

With FUTURE ISLANDS, TEETH MOUNTAIN, GENDERS, CHILD BITE, MARCO POLIO AND THE NEW VACCINES, and MUCH more.

The CAID is located at 5141 Rosa Parks Blvd, Detroit, MI 48208.
