TICKET GIVEAWAY: Dan Deacon at Republic

DanDeacon2

Dan Deacon is coming to Republic on April 21, and NolaVie has a pair of tickets to give away!  For a chance to win, follow Nola Vie on Twitter (@nolavie) and tweet “I want to see Dan Deacon (@ebaynetflix) @RepublicNOLA courtesy of @nolavie!”  The winners will be notified via direct message on Twitter by Monday, April 20.

In a scene crowded with artists that are barely discernible from one another, electronic artist Dan Deacon stands out in the best way possible.  Deacon crafts the sort of sunny electro-jams that turn any room into an instant dance party thanks to a strong set of original songs and a healthy sense of humor that makes it clear he's there exclusively to have a good time.  Deacon's shows involve active audience participation in everything from massive dance circles to races around the block (a show at Maison two years ago saw the crowd pile out of the venue and onto Frenchmen, then back in as fast as possible).  Providing those moments you can't get from your smartphone is Dan Deacon's mission on this earth.

Deacon is currently on tour in support of his excellent new album, Gliss Riffer. Tickets for the show at Republic can be purchased here.

Watch Deacon work the NPR staff into a frenzy in the clip below:
