With the tour for his latest album postponed, Baltimore electronic artist Dan Deacon, like many artists, is in a holding pattern until the coronavirus pandemic blows over and health officials say it’s OK for large public gatherings like concerts.
And like a lot of musicians, Deacon is going to perform a show to be streamed online for free, keeping us entertained as we go about our lives in self-isolation.
The show is being filmed by the French producers La Blogotheque and streamed through the groups’s Instagram page today at 7 p.m. Paris time, which is 1 p.m. Baltimore time.
In a Facebook post announcing the livestream, Deacon said he’s been in hibernation since delaying the tour in support of his latest album, “Mystic Familiar,” and “feeling the heavy feelings of this situation.”
“I haven’t unpacked my equipment since tour got put on hold,” he wrote. “This livestream has given me a nice motivator to shake off the dust and start the gears moving again.”
He said he hopes to do more livestream shows in the future, whether today’s goes well or not.
Be sure to tune in this afternoon.
