Deer Tick

Twangy rockers Deer Tick returned to NYC last night (3/6) for the ongoing American Songbook Series at Lincoln Center's Allen Room. Given the environment and their partially acoustic setup, they were less rowdy than usual, and their 20+ song set included material from all over their career. They also included a few covers, but leaned most heavily on songs from their 2007 debut, War Elephant, and their newest LP, 2013's Negativity. For "In Our Time" off the latter, Deer Tick singer John McCauley's (once very famous and still active) wife Vanessa Carlton came out to sing guest vocals, which she also does on the album version. PIctures of the show are in this post.

John and Ian of Deer Tick will be back in NYC for the Bob Dylan tribute at MHOW on 3/24 which also includes Elvis Perkins, Langhorne Slim, Dawn Landes, and more.

To be fair, he thought he was marrying Michelle Branch.

What's with the black tape over the Bud label?

Three weeks ago, I mixed them when they played an all-cover set at a wedding in PVD. Now Lincoln Center. Ian has a side project with a kid that was my son's high school classmate. Weird fucking world gets weirder when you get old.

They are, BTW, the best wedding band I've ever mixed.

The black tape was there to avoid any product placement conflicts.

I thought the black tape was because they were embarrassed to be drinking that swill.

12:44: That was exactly my theory. Like putting a bag over super-ugly chick's head while you're banging her.
