Composer and electronic musician Dan Deacon is known for his experimental and interactive shows. When a lightning storm rolled through minutes before his outdoor set was set to begin, it sparked the idea to move his gear and the dance party underground, and the impromptu performance in Walker Art Center's parking garage gave an energized start for fans at Rock The Garden 2013. Highlights from the set are backed by Deacon's "Konono Ripoff No. 1."
