Like indie rock’s H.O.R.D.E. festival, No Age, Deerhunter, and Dan Deacon are teaming up for a short stint of summer dates across the Northeast. More exciting, the engagement is collaborative: Each band will contribute parts to each other bands’ set, smoothing out the round robin format into one continuous performance piece. Deacon is already touring with a double-digit ensemble, and his densely textured Bromst is well suited to this sort of expansion; No Age and Deerhunter typically do things a bit simpler and it will be exciting to see how their songs change shape in this format.
Here are the dates:
08.01 Medford, NJ: Flying W Airport & Pool
08.02 Brooklyn, NY: Jelly Space 2009
08.03 Millvale, PA: Mr. Smalls Theatre
?08.04 Newport, KY: Southgate House
08.05 Bloomington, IN: Rhinos
?08.06 Madison, WI: UW Madison Memorial Terrace
08.07 Milwaukee, WI: Turner Hall Ballroom
Just in case you don’t live in one of the chosen cities, all three bands will be touring in some additional capacity over the next few months.
