DOWNLOAD: Deer Tick - Long Time (MP3)
I was going to start this with a bit about Deer Tick living in Rhode Island, but never staying away too long, but then I noticed his/their MySpace says his/their home is "Brooklyn, New York / Providence, Rhode Island", so now I don't know. Maybe he is already here. Either way it's a good thing and now we have yet another NYC option on New Years Eve.
As you know, Knitting Factory's Tribeca/Manhattan location is going away very soon. New Years Eve will be their very last night open - the last time to party in that location (though not everyone will be celebrating). And though the venue still hasn't listed any of the final three-floor lineup, I can confirm that Deer Tick will be a part of it.
