Dan Deacon
The Metropolitan Museum of Art , Central Park Saturday April 27 2013 20:00
This performance within the hallowed halls of the Met Museum seemingly completes the transformation of Dan Deacon from nutjob electronic party starter to institutionally approved new-music innovator. Still, anyone who's seen Deacon in situations like this one knows that you can bring him to a temple of high culture, but you can't tame his irrepressible spirit. He'll present a socially conscious, site-specific work, America.
