Doors: 7.30PM (subject to change)
Deacon has always made trailblazing music that moves people to do things they wouldn't normally do. But on his new album, America, he takes that idea a giant step further. "I hope the people who take the time to listen to these songs enjoy them," says Deacon, "but I hope that anyone looking for anything beyond that can find inspiration to change the world for the better."
His shows are renowned for the spectacle of hundreds, even thousands, of jubilant people doing coordinated movement, whether it's vast, swirling circles, long, snaking lines or just over-the-top dance contests. It's a sight to behold, but it's even more amazing to participate. And for Deacon, what is ostensibly just "fun" started to take on a profound dimension, of people uniting and claiming physical space in an ecstatic act of empowerment. He saw a metaphor in there, a connection with revolutionary movements like the Arab Spring and Occupy Wall Street. America is the soundtrack of that realisation — like James Brown once said, "Get up! Get into it! Get involved!"
Support comes from Mozart's Sister, "the electro-pop solo project of Shapes & Sizes’s Caila Thompson of indie rock, new wave, 80s pop and a little R&B tinge are guaranteed to have you on your feet. Mozart would be proud" (Pop Montreal)
