Dan Deacon At Occupy May Day In Union Square (VIDEO)

Dan Deacon performed at the Occupy May Day rally in New York Tuesday alongside Tom Morello, Immortal Technique and Das Racist. Deacon took a creative approach that played well with the crowd at Union Square, instructing them to create one large circle and guiding them in an interpretive dance.

"Trust me on this," Deacon said. "I know I don't look like the most trustworthy person but I'll try to change that."

Watch Deacon play two songs -- "Of The Mountains" and "Truth Rush" -- and tune in at the two-minute mark for said interpretive dancing:
