If Dan Deacon’s first show with his 15-piece orchestra looks remarkably similar to his old shows, that’s intentional. As he told Rob in this week’s paper, “I don’t want to just close the book on my old show. I want it to be more of an organic erosion from that, have it grow and come back and fade away. I don’t want it to just be like, I’m done with that. Now I am this esoteric dickhead. You know what I mean? I want to be the non-esoteric dickhead and the esoteric dickhead at the same time.”
