Daily Agenda Aug. 7: Indie rock round robin
Dan Deacon, Deerhunter, and No Age come together at Turner Hall
What happens when Baltimore songwriter and crazy sound-wrangler Dan Deacon's penchant for turning live shows into party-game extravaganzas meets with frantically rocking L.A. punk duo No Age and the sparkly, sinister textures of Atlanta's Deerhunter? Not a neat and orderly bill, that's for damn sure. Here, as part of a short "round robin" tour, the three artists will somehow line up all at once tonight at Turner Hall to swap songs and intermingle their membership on collaborative performances that'll ideally include new material from each. All these bands by themselves have a way of harnessing chaos in both live sets and recordings, so if anyone can pull off such a wildly conceived show, it's them. If you’re curious about what to expect, some video clips of the tour have already popped up on YouTube. This clip sounds pretty crappy, but they sure look cool together, don’t they?
