Published Sep 20, 2011Last week, weirdo electronic wonder Dan Deacon reissued two of his earliest records, Meetle Mice and Silly Hat Vs. Eagle Hat. Now the musician will be heading out on tour to celebrate the re-releases, but he will mostly be on the road showcasing his comedy skills with his Wham City art collective.
Deacon will be playing a handful of solo shows between now and December. While the bulk of the gigs take place in the U.S., the Baltimore native will make his way up to Vancouver's Rickshaw Theatre on December 2. The one-sheet explains that these will be his last shows on his own for quite some time, as his 2012 tour plans involve the collaborative Dan Deacon Ensemble.
If you're not a fan of his tunes, but do enjoy a good giggle, you might want to check out the upcoming Wham City Comedy Tour 2011, which will find him dishing out one-liners with the other members of the Wham City collective. While the travelling laugh factory hit up Toronto last year, there are no Canadian dates lined up at present. Maybe we should ask the dude if he can offer up a knee-slapper between songs in Vancouver?
You can watch a trailer for the funny fest down below.
In other news, Carpark Records is still planning to issue another older album, Spiderman of the Rings, on vinyl sometime in October.
