Is the Dan Deacon LIVE Experience overrated?
Many underground music fans say that Dan Deacon is the last great performance artist of Generation X. Others say that Dan Deacon concerts are breeding grounds for organisms born out of the sweat of heavy-set men, overbearing 17-year-old female indie music fans, and greasy bros who like the crappy kind of electronic music.
Is it one of those things where 'it used to be more enjoyable before every one thought they were supposed to enjoy it, but now it's just better not to associate with?'

Dan Deacon Theory #1: He was created for people who used to SKANK to ska music.
I think I just stop taking certain music seriously when the late-majority of 'people who are into indie & alternative music' feel passionate about it, and enjoy it too much in the live-setting.
I feel more comfortable when music is only appreciated by Innovators and Early Adopters.
If we attempt to apply this innovation curve to more aspects of blog-based music, we will better understand ourselves, festival culture, the rise and fall of bloghouse, alternative bros, mainstreamers, Justice, and every thing else under the sun.
