Halifax, Nova Scotia’s Rich Aucoin–a discofied, GQ-friendly Dan Deacon–gets the party started with the help of some bizarre DIY antics. As the crowd enjoys swatting around inflatable animals and participating in 8th grade calisthenics, they’ll also get down to the conscious electro of tracks such as “Brian Wilson is Alive.” February is a big month for Aucoin: in addition to playing in New York, he’ll jet between multiple residences in Toronto, Montreal, and Ottawa. Get happy at the most elastic, celebratory concert experience on the Lower East Side. With Ohnomoon and Vassal States.
