Dan Deacon Readies Round Robin Tour

Baltimore's going on tour–round robin style. Dan Deacon has gathered artists from Floristree, Wham City, Tarantula Hill, The Bank, Comfort Dome, and other crews in the Baltimore music scene for the Baltimore Round Robin Tour, which kicks off in October.

The multi-city event will feature nightly shows in which bands sit in a circle on the periphery of the performance space and play back-to-back songs around the room, no breaks in between. The audience, meanwhile, will view the show from the center of the room.

Each stop on the tour will be divided into two nights. The first, Eyes Night, will feature folk, noise, and improvisational music, while the second, Feet Night, will, as its name suggests, will consist of music one moves to, be it dancing or thrashing. Finally, the "Weird Round" will feature additional artists slotted into the bill for both nights in each city.
