And any plans for post-gig drinking? I might see about heading around the corner to Something Serious.
I'm going but no post-gig plans as I have to treck around London on Saturday attending THREE different birthday celebrations.
You're right. And obviously mr popular, too.
I cannot wait.
Third time I'll have seen the DD Ensemble, bit concerned the audience participation is going to fall flat in the face of a London crowd...
i really hope dd + ensemble is as good as his solo shows, which have always been amazing. i guess it just means a bit less of him in the crowd and a setlist of mostly new stuff. there are some videos on here > http://katarokkar.cribble.net/tag/dan-deacon/ of a previous ensemble show, inc. dance tunnels and dance offs. i hope he plays wham city or that 'silence like the wind overtakes me' song.
does anyone have the stage times by the way? or any cheap (ish) suggestions for afterwards? cargo is fun/free but the distance/long line outside are a big drawback.
i can't wait. i'm intrigued by dd + ensemble. i've seen him a couple of times solo and they were both up there in my best gigs list of the last two years (especially the time in portland - i was so happy afterwards i projectile vomited in the doorway to the venue). i guess it just means he'll play less on the dancefloor and a setlist of mostly new stuff. i hope he plays 'wham city' or that 'silence like the wind overtakes me' song. i really hope the audience gets into it...the videos of an ensemble show on here > http://katarokkar.cribble.net/tag/dan-deacon/ look awesome.
does anyone know the capacity of the venue or the stage times/order by the way? or any cheap (ish) club nights around there for afterwards? was thinking of making the trek over to the free night at cargo but the line outside is always slightly offputting.
firefox crashed and i thought i'd lost the first one.
I was at that show (San Francisco Great American Music Hall) and my God, it was one of the most incredible gig experiences of my life.
will definitely make it there in time for adventure.
citizenmeh and whoever's coming to this... let's make sure this one is awesome too. friday night will be perfect for it and loads of people are finishing exams/coursework this week. plus, the weather's decent and there's plenty of time to get wasted beforehand.
According to Facebook
Teeth Mountain - 8pm
Adventure - 8.35pm
Future Islands - 9.15pm
Dan Deacon with Wham City Ensemble - 10pm
thanks for that. Will definitely get there early for Teeth Mountain as I've heard good things. Got tickets for Junior Boys/Shackleton/Pantha Du Prince at the Arches after too, can't wait. I'm just hoping that London won't be too cool for Dan Deacon though, I've seen him before in Norwich and he ruled as everyone was well into it.
tempted by the junior boys fun afterwards - will see how things pan out.
on the subject of the london crowd - not sure why everyone is expecting the worst. i saw dan deacon at tufnell park 18 months ago and everyone flew right off the handle. so just make sure you do your bit tonight, go wild, and we'll all have a whale of a time!
I want to go to the Junior Boys thing but I've spent an obscene amount of money this month already.
should be fun, just said i'd go out with some friends tomorrow, ah well drinks with them before instead.
there's not many tickets left
and I cannot wait! I was meant to see him at Field Day last year but apparently he lost his passport somewhere on the way. Which sucks as he's the main reason I went.
I dragged all my mates to that tent promising them the show of a lifetime, and just got Now Dance '94 played on repeat. I mean, someone could have announced it at least. Gutted.
Probably no post gig drinking as Saturday is the Epsom Derby and I'm saving myself for some serious gambling
there is one left. if anyone wants to buy me a drink it'd be appreciated, i'm having an awful week and i'm mad poor.
Anyone got a spare?
"Generally Dan's gigs are very memorable but when I woke up today I saw 3 people had posted status updates about one particularly nuts thing that happened last night.
Basically ... "the human gauntlet actually went out the doors of Andrew’s Lane, up the side alley [actually that happened the night I was there too], around Exchequer St, around Trinity Street and back to the venue"
I'd estimate that doing that would have taken about 15-20 minutes for the gauntlet to loop around and get back into the venue.
Taxi drivers were pulling over on the street to gawp at what was going on.
Presumably YouTube videos will appear in the next day or so."
Oh man, did you underestimate us...
Two completely different gigs, but this and last week's Final Fantasy show are up there with the best I've ever experienced.
The best of the three times I've seen him, and one of the best shows I've ever attended. I feel sorry for anyone sitting within 100 metres of me on the Tube on the way back...
That was amazing! The reciting words, hands on a stranger's head, Sir and Madam! He better be back soon cos I'm gonna have to go to gigs where we don't count down from 40 then straight to 13 at the start and that's no fun
Snookered I thought I was going to cry, it was a great moment. Everyone seemed to have a huge smile on their face throughout, such an amazing group experience. I too was utterly drenched in my own sweat.
but one bar open and a 35 minute queue for a drink... wtf utr/ulu?
I agree with these sentiments and acronyms.
Dan Deacon was fucking ace.
I wandered down the road and got a drink from the pub instead. Deacon was fantastic, shame some of his pied piper tricks didn't really seem to be followed (did the archway of arms just fall flat? Nothing appeared to happen with that) but yeah, I don't think I stopped smiling once during the concert. Silence like the Wind was majestic at the end, epic!
