Baltimore electronic music wizard Dan Deacon will headline the 2019 Tallahassee Film Festival Saturday night party, with a DJ set at The Wilbury! The show, co-sponsored by Word of South and COCA, promises to be one highlight among many at our celebration of independent and international cinema. Deacon, whose eight albums include Spiderman of the Rings, Bromst and Gliss Riffer, is notorious for his wild and spontaneous live shows that meld the vibe of a performance-art happening with his free-thinking permutations on decades of avant-garde music lineage. In recent years, he also has won renown as a composer of film scores, work he will discuss in a special festival conversation.
Opening DJ set by Ryan Chavers! DJ Ryan has been a fixture on the airwaves, in the clubs, and at bars all over Tallahassee since 2004. He brings a deep love and vast knowledge of many genres from the mainstream to the underground. With tastefully curated crates full of top 40 pop, R’n’B, punk, soul/funk, disco, house, downtempo, hip-hop and everything in between, it’s all fair game. Expect the unexpected.
Saturday, April 6 at The Wilbury
Doors @ 8pm
