Wham City returning to Troy; Dan Deacon at MASS MoCA

wham city comedy 2013

Wham City

The Wham City comedy tour will be back in Troy April 17 at 51 3rd Street. Blurbage:

The Wham City Comedy Tour is a two-hour cross-genre variety show, showcasing the very best from Baltimore's award-winning artist collective and fabled party starters. Expect stand-up sets, videos, dramatic monologues, and ensemble sketches in a tightly-run, visionary performance.

Wham City is a Baltimore-based arts collective that includes Dan Deacon. Or, as it was described in a SPIN article a few years back, "a collective of hilarious weirdos that dig on the absurd." The group was last here in 2011.

Show starts at 8:30 pm. There's an $8 suggested donation.

Speaking of Dan Deacon...
He's playing a show at MASS MoCA April 20 at 8 pm. Tickets are $12 ahead / $16 day of / $10 students.

Deacon also now has a mobile app, which reacts during his shows. (He used it on Jimmy Kimmel in December.) From an interview with the Phoenix New Times last fall: "Culturally, phones are there. There's no way we're gonna remove them and people aren't gonna not use them so we might as well find a way to incorporate them into our work rather than pretend they don't exist."

Or, as the app's page at iTunes remarks: "For the first time, having your phone out at a concert is not a jerk move."
