DAN DEACON is back in town and we couldn't be happier to have him for this round of Red Bull Sound Select Chicago! This Baltimore based singer/songwriter and electroacoustic composer is always a damn treat to have on our stage. DEACON adventured into untouched territory with his latest self-produced LP Gliss Riffer, released last February. Following up on the release of his large ensemble-based recordings - 2009's Bromst and 2012's America - DEACON decided to return to a simpler way of writing and recording, similar to that of 2007's breakthru Spiderman of the Rings. What Gliss Riffer shares with Spiderman of the Rings is a direct and ecstatic energy. It trades in exuberant, uncontained fun that is tempered by lyrics that yearn and are set in defiance of life's nagging anxiety.
