make us dance, fat man

the unmoving dance of shame, originally uploaded by Mister Wind-Up Bird.

Dan Deacon took over Richard’s on Richards last night and put on what may well be the show of the year (well, for me — I don’t go to all that many shows). Vancouver hipsters are legendarily reluctant to shake it at on the floor, but they were no match for Deacon’s infectiously dorky showmanship, which Wikipedia describes as "part stand-up act and part dance party". It didn’t hurt that he was backed by a 13-piece ensemble, including THREE drummers. (And to think, I was once impressed by Caribou’s two drummers.)
