April 20. Many of us first became aware of Dan Deacon via "Drinking Out of Cups," his bewilderingly surreal, side-splittingly hilarious 2003 collaboration with animator-musician Liam Lynch, which became a YouTube sensation. Called "one of the few pop electronic dance music-makers who is also consistently described as a composer" by NPR, Deacon, who visits MASS MoCA this month, is also revered for his high-energy live performances. In August 2012 he launched a smartphone app that synchronizes in real time to his show's light and sound components, allowing the audience to participate in his signature concert ambiance. (King Khan of King Khan and the Shrines DJs April 6; Darlingside plays April 13.) 8pm. $12, $16. North Adams, Massachusetts.

Speaking of...
