Round Robin!



I don't know if you guys are quite ready for this one yet, but allow me to introduce you to Baltimore's Dan Deacon curated Round Robin. In the spirit of this year's Fuck Yeah Fest Round Robin has become a touring performance art piece, or a music festival if that's all you wanna make out of it. While you prepare for the show of the year, here's a little FAQ:

WHAT IS A ROUND ROBIN SHOW LIKE?

The format of the show is as follows:
-All the bands set up at the same time along the perimeter of the room with the audience in the center
-Each band does one song per round, no breaks, back to back to back etc., until the show is completed
-There is no headliner or opener, no front row or back of the room

The 60+ people driving around by only veggie powered vehicles in a community on wheels. Curated by Dan Deacon, the tour includes bands from Floristree, Wham City, Tarantula Hill, The Bank, Comfort Dome and other Baltimore music homes

WHAT IS EYES NIGHT? FEET NIGHT?

The tour is divided into two nights. The first night (Eyes Night) is a mixture of folk, noise, theatrics, improvisation, music that is spiritual, dreamy etc. The second night (Feet Night) is devoted to music that you dance, thrash or otherwise move around to and is a mixture of electronic, punk, hardcore, dance, and rock and roll musics.
