Dan Deacon @ Transmodern Festival

The huge influx in must see shows this weekend is mostly due to Transmodern Festival. The weekend-long event is taking place throughout the H&H Building and boasting every type of art one could desire.

Arguably the most anticipated act of the event is Dan Deacon's Saturday night performance.

The Wham City founder is on a bit of high note, after just blowing most of our minds by dropping his latest LP, Bromst. His second album takes all that is great about his live shows and his debut, and rewrites it into an electronic-based symphony of pure joy.

The album features over 30 musicians, creating sounds the old-fashioned way unlike his previous efforts. There are still the building synths and feel good yet spazzed out vocals, but the sound is overall much more organically clean and wholesome.

In addition that night, look to catch Deacon's upcoming Bromst tour buddies and personal favorites of mine Future Islands and Teeth Mountain. Hot diggity, are you as torn between this and Ariel Pink / Vivian Girls as I am? Choices my friends, choices.
