Music Around Town

Dan Deacon/WUME/Pleasure Leftists

When: Wed., Nov. 18, 8 p.m. 2015

When electronic musician Dan Deacon played Cleveland three years ago, he delivered a highly engaging set at the Beachland Ballroom. Early in the set, he made everyone stand in a circle and dance in unison. Later, he would have everyone cram into the middle of the dance floor and gyrate. All the while, he kept a steady stream of hard-hitting beats flowing, turning the cacophonous “Lots,” a tune from his just-released album America, into noisy anthem. For “Trippy Green Skull,” he put electronic effects on his vocals to make it sound like he had sucked down a bunch of helium. A true eccentric, Deacon puts on one hell of a show and not many electronic artists come close to doing anything as engaging. (Niesel)
