Oct 09, 1971 – Ray Tomlinson Sends First Email

Internet Hall of Fame inductee Ray Tomlinson sent the first email in 1971, forever changing the landscape of communication technology. Today, his fledgling efforts have resulted in 3 billion email accounts and a new internet generation.

Enter electronic instrumentalist and composer Dan Deacon. Deacon will perform portions of the USA suite from his most recent record America. In addition to the musical component of the show Dan will also utilize the Dan Deacon smart phone app - technology that wouldn't have been possible without the innovation of Ray Tomlinson.

Musing on that critical moment 40 years ago, Deacon has crafted a one-of-a-kind musical experience, with his signature combination of music and tech. Audience members can download the FREE smart phone app (created by Wham City Lights) prior to the concert. The app merges music and technology by sending a tone that works with your smart phone to create a totally unique light show.
