Dan Deacon Goes Green. Needs Veggie Oil. Offers Tickets & Dinner.

Dan Deacon is going green and needs our help.  His tour bus runs on veggie oil and he is asking his fans to help him fill it up.  If you bring 5 gallons of veggie oil to the show, you can get a free ticket (arrangements in advance).  If you bring 30 gallons, DAN DEACON WILL COOK YOU DINNER ON THE BUS!  He was just in Nashville on the 7th and the next time he comes close to Louisville will be the Chicago show at the Metro on May 7th (The Urbana show on the 6th is 3.7 hours away).  Not a bad trip, but the 30 gallons of veggie oil sloshing in the back of your car might slow you down.  See below for more details.

From Dan Deacon via Myspace:


the school tour bus the 20 of us are riding in runs on veggie oil. we need help gathering that oil to fuel our bus. if anyone can bring at least 5 gallons of waste veggie oil to one of the shows we will put you on the guest list. it is easily found behind almost all restaurants.

if the oil looks dark and full of crud we can’t use it. the lighter the color and the less viscous the better. if you can bring us CLEAN and filtered oil we can put you + 1 on the list.

an easy way to filter the oil would be to stretch a tight sheet or t-shirt over a bucket and pour the oil into the bucket through the sheet to get all the gunk out. a slower way, but better way, would be to tie one of the pant legs of jeans into a tight knot and hang that over a bucket and pour the oil into the jeans, and clean oil will slowly pass into the bucket.

to arrange the grease for list swap you can call geoff at 862-266-6130. don’t message me hear. call or text him. he is our oil master. the more oil the better. we have enough storage for 100 gallons of oil. if you can get us 30 gallons we’ll cook you dinner on the bus (we have a little kitchen and many great cooks).

please repost this to anywhere you think it might help.
thanks you!

  1. The show in Urbana is a much much closer drive.

    Kudos to Dan Deacon for supporting the cause.

  2. You are absolutely right. I mapquested it and found that Urbana is 3.7 hours away. The Chicago show is 4.6 hours away (not including traffic). Good call.
