PLAYING HIS SELF TITLED DEBUT ALBUM IN FULL
Whelan’s Main Venue
Born in North Carolina to Maher Baba disciples, Darwin grew up on a diet of Weezer, Nirvana and Toto, and started his first band with friends at age 12.After attending and promptly dropping out of Wesleyan University, Connecticut, Darwin moved to and found himself at home in New York City.
In the East Village, he became a fixture of Monday nights at the Sidewalk Café, a legendary stomping ground for NYC’s Anti-folk scene. Here Darwin came into his own as a performer, his live shows became extravaganzas of unbridled energy and unfettered joy and often broke into spontaneous bouts of synchronised dancing which can erupt anytime, almost out of nowhere.
Singularly a brilliant, hilarious, complex, entertaining individual, Darwin Deez writes songs that will make you want to bust out your dancing shoes while also cutting to that raw, emotional nerve. Renowned for the most entertaining of live shows, with added choreographed dance routines, don’t miss your chance to witness a rare insight into everything a pop star should be, and yet so rarely is.
““…a giddy live act for which he and his virtuosic backup band bring the dance party onstage with disarming sincerity. Deez’s syrupy vocals skip playfully above highly danceable indie-pop grooves.” – The New Yorker
“Prince-meets-Jonathan Richman. Artfully artless, his songs sound as if they have burst out of him, fully formed snap-crackle-pop gems that are somehow both disposable and enduringly resonant” – The Sunday Times
“Darwin Deez, totally f***ing awesome” – NME
