CHIRP welcomed Dan Deacon (and his band) to a packed show at Lincoln Hall last week the day after the Presidential elections. If you've never experienced a Dan Deacon show then you must know that their set is filled with energy, audience participation and political commentary. The audience participation started out small by simply urging the audience to point up toward the light or place their hand on their neighbor’s head. This swiftly escalated into a full-on dance party in the middle off the floor where Dan personally picked out people from the crowd to shake what their momma gave ‘em.
The main floor went empty when Dan encouraged everyone to form a receiving line that the rest of the crowd danced thru. The line reached all the way into the restaurant of the venue and right back onto the main floor. The height of the crowd's energy came when Dan told everyone to pull out their smartphones and hit the "I'm at Show" button on Dan's smartphone app. Quickly everyone's phone became the lighting during the tune "Trash Thrush." Dan is perfect at creating a sense of camaraderie among concertgoers that is rarely seen at concerts. I think artists could really take a few notes from Mr. Deacon.
