Next month, Baltimore musician Dan Deacon will headline a "Sweet 16" anniversary concert for National Public Radio's music podcast "All Songs Considered" at Washington's 9:30 Club, the station announced in a news release Friday.

The concert, hosted by the podcast's Bob Boilen and Robin Hilton, will take place Jan. 13. Sharon Van Etten, along with "surprise performances from artists central to the history of the show," will also perform. Tickets, listed at $20, are on sale now here.

"All Songs Considered" debuted as an online music show in 2000, and its podcast is consistently ranked as the top music program on iTunes, the release stated. It is also known for its Tiny Desk Concerts series.

The release describes Deacon — who most recently supported Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz on tour — as "the man who can make anyone dance." Deacon released his fourth album, "Gliss Riffer," in February. Read our feature on him here.
