Live Review: Dan Deacon’s Rickshaw Stop Show Was a Hot Mess

in the best way possible, that is. Anyone who’s seen the trash-DIY electronic artist perform knows that the music itself is almost secondary to the extracurricular activities: Deacon treats his live show less like a passive experience and more like a dance party, presiding over the crowd like something between an avuncular professor type and a benevolent dictator. From the moment Deacon started playing at around 11:15, it was clear that last night’s show — the second of two Noise Pop gigs for him this week — was no exception.
