Tour Notes::Dan Deacon and his Wham City Choir

Dan Deacon launches his lengthy Spring / Summer tour tonight in Greensboro, NC. A vision came to Dan one night of being joined by an angelic choir at the end of his set each night for a rousing, spiritual version of his anthem “Wham City” from his recently released Spiderman of the Rings – a musical tribute to his place of dwelling and to the Baltimore music community he is a part of. This is where YOU come in – Dan Deacon is inviting you to come and be his choir. Dan envisioned a co-ed choir, so all you have to do is be one of the first four males or first four females in your city to e-mail and YOU will become a member of the Dan Deacon Wham City choir! (please put the name of your city and your gender in the subject line of the e-mail to make things easier for Dan). Dan collaborated with Baltimore artist Stefani Levin to make eight beautiful blue and yellow Wham City choir robes which you’ll get to wear, and Dan will provide you with lyric sheets. If you want to practice and prepare, the song “Wham City” is posted on Dan Deacon’s MySpace page at so you can start singing along.

In other news, Dan Deacon will release “The Crystal Cat” as a 7″ single on Carpark on July 17 with a new, previously unreleased B-side.
