I’ve never actually attended a Dan Deacon show, but just the other day a friend was telling me how rad they are, and that Deacon especially likes starting dance contests in the crowd. According to P4K, Deacon has released an app for his current tour in support of new album America (TMT Review) on Domino, an app possibly geared toward those of us who dig weird and interactive shows but aren’t too keen on dancing in front of strangers.
Developed and programmed by Deacon with help from Keith Lea, Patrick McGinn, Alan Resnick, and Robert O’Brien, the app turns your phone into a light show, a musical instrument, and a strobe. Check out the trailer, and snag the app via the iTunes App Store or Google Play.
P.S. The app doesn’t require wifi or data. RAD.
