Deertick

This summer seems to be the summer of ticks. Spend one hour outside in some tall grass and you are sure to have a tick crawling somewhere on your body. To make matters worse, as soon as you find one, you will no doubt have that creepy crawly feeling that they are all over you.

Minnesota has two species of ticks, the wood tick and the deer tick. Wood ticks are relatively harmless, while deer ticks can carry lyme disease and more recently, Powassan virus. [Echo Press]

Deer Tick played the final free 'Hudson River Rocks' show at Pier 54 on Thursday (8/11) with DOM and Translations. Pictures and a video of Deer Tick covering "La Bamba" are in this post.

Deer Tick also played a benefit for the Tommy Brull Foundation at Mulcahy's in Wantagh, NY one night earlier (8/10). There they played a two hour career-spanning set of thirty songs including covers of Nirvana, Chuck Berry, Sam Cooke, The Champs, and Lightnin Hopkins. Download MP3s of the entire set at NYC Taper.

Does anyone know which band at this show covered The Cure "Boys Don't Cry"?

Posted by Anonymous | August 15, 2011 5:53 PM

Dom covered Boys Don't Cry.

Anyone know the first song Deer Tick covered and the name of the Townes Van Zandt cover they closed with?

Posted by Anonymous | August 15, 2011 6:08 PM

Dom did Boys Don;t Cry near the end of their set. Deer Tick was great.

Deer Tick covered Tom Waits Innocent When You Dream and the Townes Van Zandt song was White Freight Liner Blues. I think they did one more cover too?

That NJTP shirt is bullshit, because people in New Jersey ask "What Exit?" (as on the back of the shirt) about the GARDEN STATE PARKWAY, not the Turnpike. Must be a case of the privately-owned Turnpike and its evil Authority trying to make more money - fuckers

6:34 is right. "What Exit" ALWAYS refers to the GSP. But how would they know? These fools aren't even from Jersey. They're from fucking Rhode Island.

Rhode Island is the New Jersey of New England

Annoying crowed. Seemed like 80% of the pier was full of people hanging out at a BBQ not even paying attention to the band

I wanted to thank you for the pictures because this is one of the few concerts I couldn't bring my camera to. And I love how I'm the girl in the white and yellow dress.
I had no idea the pictures were being take, but they're brilliant. so thank you :)

Stephanie, how are your boobs? Hope they aren't bruised. You and your friend kept getting slammed into the barricades at the end of the set. You made for nice eye candy. Yum!

8:38 PM: It's a line from Richard Christy. Why change it to fit one of your stupid memes?

BV's comment section should be 21+ to prevent juveniles like 9:03 from posting

Posted by Anonymous | August 16, 2011 10:39 AM

^ What about people over 21 who still post like they're still in grade school?
