Last night's Deer Tick show marks the 2nd time that a couple got engaged on stage at a Deer Tick show in Brooklyn. The first time it happened, it was frontman John McCauley who proposed to Nikki Darlin on stage in Prospect Park. This time, at Music Hall of Williamsburg, it was a fan. And she said yes! Pictures of the happy couple below.

Last night's show was also not the first time Titus Andronicus frontman Patrick Stickles joined Deer Tick, whose guitar player is ex-Titus member Ian O'Neil, on stage. This time it was for a cover of the Replacements' "Can't Hardly Wait".

Jason Anderson of K Records fame opened the show, which I thought was weird until I found out the connection. John McCauley has played drums for Jason, and they were both Tiger Saw collaborators! J Roddy Walston and the Business played 2nd, and all bands joined Deer Tick on the stage at the end of the show. Beer was spraying everywhere.

Things will probably be slightly less rowdy when John McCauley goes on a solo tour in 2011. Dates are TBA, but tickets are already on sale for a January 19th show at City Winery (not sure if he'll be playing any drums at this one).

Show was great... but Jason Anderson is such a huge Springsteen ripoff. Him and his keyboard player were even wearing the same hats that Bruce and Danny Federici were wearing for the '75 Hammersmith Odeon concert.

Webster Hall a few months back was very good, but this show last night was positively EPIC. These fellas are staking a claim for best band going. Period.

epic? when i saw deer tick earlier this year i imagined they could have been plucked from any college-town bar. not saying they're bad, just pedestrian.

did you just question someone's opinion of a show you didn't attend? the show was spontaneous, Deer Tick played the hell out of their whole set, someone proposed to his girlfriend onstage, the crowd was really into it, and everyone had fun. so yes, it was something like 'epic'. or at least a very good show. sorry that your experience wasn't

Want more Jason Anderson? There's a headlining gig tomorrow night, 11/15, at The Rock Shop in Park Slope. Mount Moriah and Modest Midas open.
