Great American Music Hall
Better than: Girl Talk; every party I attended between the ages of 7 and 15.
There are only a handful of live shows today that get singled out as truly unique experiences, nights you simply must have before hanging up your Chucks or plugs: The Flaming Lips, Girl Talk, Kanye or Jay-Z, maybe even Gwar. Dan Deacon is one of the more recent names to be added to this group, but unlike the others, his music in a normal listening context isn't always approachable. What makes the live experience so much better?
