Deer Tick

Really? Deer Tick? My first impression. Actually, that included some goosebumps and squirming because I'm not a huge fan of parasites. Even the word gives me the heebie geebies. But get past that and get to the music!

Deer Tick made their TV debut on David Letterman during the summer of last year. Don't let their young age fool you. They are all folk and bluegrass with a modern twist. They consider themselves a rock and roll band. It's a very interesting sound and more loyal to bluegrass than rock. I absolutely love their song, Baltimore Blues No.1. Who would've thought!? Then I found out they covered one of Sammy Davis Jr's songs. There, you got me.

Deer Tick consists of the founder, John McCauley, Ian O'Neil, Rob Crowell, Christopher Ryan and Dennis Ryan. They hail from Providence, RI. Yep, this is where all those mansions are! And beautiful beaches. Anyways, there's been many changes in the line-up of Deer Tick over the years. Let's hope they finally got it right. Their latest album, The Black Dirt Sessions, came out on June 8, 2010.

They'll be performing at the Hudson River Rocks (NYC) at Pier 54 on Monday, 8/8/2011 @ 7. It's a free concert! What else are you going to do on a Monday night? See you there.

RESCHEDULED!!! FYI, I've just been informed that Deer Tick's performance has been rescheduled to THURSDAY, 8/11/11, @ 7 PM @ Pier 54. Ok, so...hope your Monday night goes well anyway!
