If you'll be in Austin for SXSW this year, especially if you have a badge, please stop by Club De Ville on Wednesday night, March 18th, 2009 for the official BrooklynVegan showcase (aka a show aka a concert with six bands that is officially a part of the overall South by Southwest festival). If you don't have a SXSW badge, this show will cost you a modest fee at the door. This is who we've got on the bill...
Starting things off. She hails all the way from Brooklyn... it's Bell who will have just finished a tour with Asobi Seksu. (8 PM)
After Shilpa, it's Portland, Oregon's Loch Lomond (with special guests). You may have caught Loch Lomond while they toured the country with The Decemberists. The Decemberists just so happen to be playing across the street at Stubb's, a few hours later, on the same SXSW night. (10 PM)
Not to stereotype, but girl power continues with the fourth act of the night. This also marks the beginning of the "alt-country" portion of the evening. It's Those Darlins. Maybe you saw them on their current tour with Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys.
Next up... I've mentioned it a few times now: Phosphorescent will perform their/his new Willie Nelson tribute album, "To Willie", from start to finish . By the time this show happens, Phos will have done the same thing in Brooklyn, LA, and San Francisco. After SXSW, they may never do it again. (12 AM) Don't miss it...
...AND then, don't leave yet, because last but not least, Deer Tick (reunited with Those Darlins for the millionth time) are going to finish the night off. This closing performance feels especially special because this is the second year in a row that Deer Tick are playing the same showcase at the same venue, except last year their set time was much earlier. (1 AM)
NOTE: This is one of MANY SXSW events we planned, produced, or BrooklynVegan are just somehow involved in this year. I'll announce all of them ASAP, including the free day parties, and one more of them now...
Bill Pearis, currently best known for his weekly column "Week in Indie", will be representing BrooklynVegan.com on a SXSW panel about music blogs on Thursday, March 19th at 11am at the Austin Convention Center. The event is for SXSW badge holders only.

"Isbell's 90-minute show was pretty much a crash course in getting it right. Sporting crisp Western wear and slinging impeccably heated guitar solos, Isbell wailed in a rasp that showcased both emotional heft and admirable technique, proffering lyrics that could break hearts on the first listen. (The only sour note was the nearly 45-minute-late start time).That review comes from Tuesday's Boston show which was two nights before Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit and Deer Tick shared a bill at the Bowery Ballroom in NYC. Unlike Deer Tick's headlining show at the same venue only a couple of weeks earlier, they opened this one for Jason (who they are now on tour with). More pictures below...
Considering his hitch with the brawny, brainy Southern rockers the Drive-By Truckers, it's not surprising Isbell has brought confidence and humility to his solo albums and performances. That includes his recent sublime eponymous release." [The Boston Globe]
Razorlight is playing Hiro Ballroom on March 10th. Tickets are on sale.

"On Friday at the Bowery Ballroom I saw a great show by the Providence band Deer Tick. During my stay in Providence for 4 years while attending RISD there was a Deer Tick show almost every weekend at AS220. For me Deer Tick and their War Elephant album was basically my soundtrack for school, and it gave me warm fuzzy feeling to see them in New York at such a great venue.Deer Tick are now on tour. More pictures from the Friday the 13th show, and the latest set of dates, below...
The only negative part of the evening was me dropping my camera from the balcony, but miraculously it didn't hurt anybody and managed to survive." [Adam Schmidt]

"Perhaps one of the best Britrock records of 2008, a year which has seen releases from UK giants like Coldplay, Snow Patrol, Keane and Travis, comes to us special delivery from Madison, Wisconsin and the band Pale Young Gentlemen." [PopMatters]The M.I.A. cover was recorded for Cokemachineglow's Fantasy podcast which is also on the top of this post for download and includes other covers by Wye Oak (doing Grand Buffet), Mason Proper (doing LCD Soundsystem), Noah23 (doing Lil Wayne), Stars Like Fleas (doing Pussycat Dolls), and many others.

Deer Tick helped ring in the New Year at Knitting Factory in NYC on December 31st. The performance was also part of what was the club's last show ever. Next up for Deer Tick in NYC is a headlining show at Bowery Ballroom on February 13th with the Thalia Zedek Band and The Weight. Tickets are on sale.
Jason Isbell @ All Points West (more by Kyle Dean Reinford)
Right around that same time, Jason and the Tick will join up for a tour that includes shows in Boston, Philly, Toronto, Colubmus and many other places. They'll both also eventually make their way back to Austin to play SXSW where Deer Tick played the official BrooklynVegan showcase in 2007. All tour dates below...
Akron/Family played the final song at the Knitting Factory (Josh Haner/The NY Times)
"It was a particularly cacophonous performance of "Auld Lang Syne." But for the Knitting Factory's last night in Manhattan, it was appropriate, as the shaggy avant-folk group Akron/Family led a version of the Scots New Year's hymn on Wednesday night that mutated from a simple singalong to screeching feedback to a meditative one-note drone." [NY TIMES]The NYC club is closed, but that's not the last of "Knitting Factory". In addition to the locations in Hollywood, Boise and Spokane that are still open, Knitting Factory Brooklyn is supposedly opening in March. Knitting Factory is also currently promoting/presenting some shows at The Studio @ Webster Hall - two at least:
- Jan 09 - Bear Hands, Holy Hail, Atarah Valentine & Statehood
- Jan 24 - Oxford Collapse, Suckers & Real Estate
Leonard Street, 3-floor location, RIP.

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.

"Deer Tick took the stage at Brooklyn's Southpaw on Saturday for the release of the War Elephant reissue on Partisan Records. Texas based Feow! Records put out the first version of War Elephant last Fall. Unfortunately, the little label run by Jana hunter and Matt Brownlie closed up shop this past August.More pictures below...
Five minutes had not elapsed before bronze-voiced McCauley was shirtless. A detail that lent to a level of intimacy that one usually doesn't get from a standing-room-only concert. It was best illustrated in the couple of songs he played with one of the ladies from Those Darlins (I have a crush on the curly haired one, by the way). They had written some ditties at 6am, just hanging out. McCauley's stage presence exudes simply that: we're all friends and we're hangin' out, singing together. The first half of the set consisted of newer, meloncholy songs. I was annoyed by some drunk members of the audience that wouldn't STFU during a beautiful piece of just acoustic guitar, upright bass and harmonica (I don't know why, but this girl brought an aloe vera plant to the show and wouldn't stop talking about it). At the halfway point, McCauley started a sing-along hootenanny with "Ashamed" - to which my friends and I drove our fists into the air and exclaimed in chorus: "Oh oh oh ohhhhhh, a crying shame! A cryin' shame, what we became!" Highlights included the foot-stomping "These Old Shoes" and a song dedicated to president-elect Obama. The night ended with a glorious cover of "La Bamba.""

"Despite the dismal Spiegeltent acoustics, Deertick's rough-hewn blues folk is a refreshing break from today's production-heavy pop. John McCauley screeching, slurring, scratching and finger-plunking with lazy eyes. It's easy to succumb to band's loose playing style and 'my-porch-is-your-porch' Americana charm. Like life's greatest ephiphanies, the more beer imbibed, the more the words made sense. By the end of their set, Deertick had the crowd woozy and warm. Then, they did a cover of "La Bamba." Ritchie Valens' "La Bamba." Now, let's be honest: though Ritchie Valens may be an inspiration of McCauley's, pretty much any white country blues band that covers "La Bamba" is asking for associations with (bad) wedding bands. We'd have much preferred their killer rendition Sean Kingston's "Beautiful Girl"......But hey, truth told, the crowd seemed to love it and sway along....and sure it made the whiskey go down smoother." - FaithThe Sean Kingston cover Faith speaks of available for download above. The show she was at was the one that happened Sunday night, November 2nd, at Spiegelword by the South Street Seaport in NYC. More pictures from that below, but first....
Some may remember that I announced this show almost two months ago, but got in trouble and quickly removed the post. This is what I wrote at the time:
BrooklynVegan is proud to present Deer Tick's NYC record re-release party at Southpaw in Brooklyn on November 8th. Luke Temple and Those Darlins will open the show. Tickets are on sale.Now that Spiegelworld is over, I'm allowed to say it. Better late than never.
The Southpaw show is six days after Deer Tick plays the Spiegeltent in Manhattan with the Felice Brothers who are playing Maxwell's with AA Bondy this Saturday (9/13).
Deer Tick also have another record re-release party, Friday in Rhode Island. The record is out November 11th. All dates and Spiegelworld pictures below....

Partisan Records is ecstatic to announce the signing of Deer Tick. Partisan will re-issue Deer Tick's debut War Elephant on November 25, 2008. The re-issue will be released on both double limited edition vinyl and CD with new album artwork. Partisan Records will also be releasing a full-length album of early original Deer Tick songs at a later date.Deer Tick previosly mentioned the re-issue in his McCarren Pool apology letter.
Songwriting prodigy John McCauley III wrote and recorded War Elephant at the age of 20, and plays every single instrument on the album. Originally a very limited release, the album [that I love a lot] quickly went out of print. The War Elephant re-issue will also represent the first ever vinyl release from Deer Tick.
Deer Tick is going on tour with The Felice Brothers who have a whole bunch of their own dates even sooner including September 13th at Maxwell's with AA Bondy (tix). The Deer/Felice NYC date is at Spiegelworld on November 2nd. All dates for all of them (and more photos from the above bikinis and guns photoshoot) below...
Deer Tick @ McCarren Pool, NYC - Aug 10, 2008 (Free Williamsburg)
Dear Greater New York City Area,"War Elephant" is one of my favorite albums of 2007.
I was really excited to perform at the McCarren Pool Party yesterday [August 10, 2008]. The plan was for me to fly from Memphis to NYC yesterday morning and head straight to the pool. My first flight was delayed, so I missed my connection, and my new connection was eventually cancelled. My guitar spent the night in Newark while I spent the night in Atlanta. Needless to say, this experience was not nearly as cool as playing with the incredible lineup at the pool would have been. I'm really sorry that all of this happened, but on a more positive note, I'll be back to NYC soon to play a show for all of you that were excited to see us. On an even more positive note, I'm excited to tell you that I've signed to a new label and "War Elephant" will be re-released on vinyl and CD very soon. More details to come.
John McCauley III
Deer Tick didn't play the pool yesterday, but The Felice Brothers, Langhorne Slim, and Eli 'Paperboy" Reed still did.

Deer Tick @ Southpaw, Brooklyn, NY - June 30, 2008 (Stark)
Solo, frontman John McCauley's songs echoed with the classic sadness of Townes Van Zandt - with his band, the songs came alive and crackled with energy. His drunken, mostly hilarious stage banter remained the same. McCauley brought along a tasteful and talented upright bass player and drummer for the evenings performance. They laid in the pocket and stayed out of the way and let the almost rockabilly-country songs and vocals come to the forefront. [Stark]Deer Tick played a show with Miles Benjamin Anthony Robinson at Southpaw last night.
Today (July 1) it was announced that Deer Tick will be playing with Death Vessel at Knitting Factory tonight. The show is the first of many that Death Vessel has coming up. All tour dates below....

Ponytail @ Knitting Factory (more by Ryan Muir)
Abe Vigoda AND Ponytail are playing with Titus Andronicus at that previously announced July 13th show at Mercury Lounge in NYC. Tickets are still on sale. But that's just one of many shows all three of these bands have coming up.
Ponytail are also playing the free After the Jump show happening at Music Hall of Williamsburg this Saturday afternoon (June 21st), but not before playing a "Less Artists More Condos" party tonight (Friday June 20). And while they're here from Baltimore, why not fit in as many shows as possible. Ponytail are also playing a second show on Saturday at Silent Barn:
==== SATURDAY 6/21 --EARLY-7PM!-- @ SILENT BARN ====Deer Tick is also playing that Rooftop Films show in Manhattan tonight (Friday), and will be back to play Southpaw on June 30th.
:::: DEER TICK
:::::: White Hinterland
:::::::: Sal Feathers
Titus Andronicus are also playing After The Jump on Saturday, but they're playing the part of the festival that costs $10 and happens later inside Music Hall of Williamsburg. Health are playing that show too.
Myopenbar Presents:Then Ponytail is playng the Yard AGAIN eight days later - at the huge, crazy, Todd P show that Titus Andronicus and Abe Vigoda are also playing. This outdoor show is one day before the show all three of them play Mercury Lounge (see above), and it's one day after Abe Vigoda plays the Seaport with No Age (who may or may not be the special guest at any one of these other events).
July 4th, 1pm - 9pm
Special Guest: 80's Hardcore (Gavin McInness and Terry Richardson) and
DJ Dirty Fingers
complimentary PBR and Southern Comfort
free treats from the Ice Cream Man
The Yard, Gowanus, Brooklyn
THEN, Ponytail plays The Yard AGAIN 10 days after their last Yard show - this time as part of a tour with Joan of Arc which also includes a show at Knitting Factory one day later (for those counting, that makes 8 upcoming Ponytail shows in NYC - 3 of which are at the Yard). Make that nine: tickets are already on sale for an August 23rd show at Knitting Factory with Don Caballero.
We're not finished. Titus Andronicus are also playing Knitting Factory on June 27th, and a free show with Obits at the East River Amphitheater the next day, AND another show at 123 House in Brooklyn later that night, AND at Maxwell's with The Dirtbombs on July 11th (two days before they play that Mercury Lounge show that started this post) (and one day before that big Todd P show at the Yard). All tour dates for everyone below....
Deer Tick @ Southpaw (more)
I don't know what happened to Jaymay's tour partner/opener, but the June 10th show at Bowery Ballroom got seriously much more awesome recently with the addition of not just AA Bondy, but Deer Tick too (it's like the official BV SXSW showcase all over again....well, the first part anyway), Tickets are still on sale.
AA Bondy is also playing a benefit with Ron Sexsmith at Housing Works Bookstore on June 20th (which is one day before Jaymay finishes up her tour in Seattle).
Speaking of Zombieville (the monthly party that happens again tonight at Southpaw), I went to the last one to see Deer Tick. Here are the pics. I also saw Deer Tick again since then - at my official SXSW showcase which was also my favorite time. More chances to see him (them) coming up...

I flew in to Austin on wednesday morning and the festival was already going strong. After picking up my credentials and looking out from the top of the convention center I started to get a feel for the scope and scale of the whole event.
on top of the Austin convention center
My first stop was the Mohawk for a party sponsored by the familliar Gothamist/Austinist websites. While the first band i saw 'We Barbarians' didnt impress me much, their set allowed for ample time to catch my bearings and down a few complimentary beers. It wasn't too long before i realized Phosphorescent was playing inside downstairs to a packed house. Then Shearwater started their set outside. I tried to catch as much of each set without jumping back and forth - a strategy I would get better at as the days went on.....

John Vanderslice is now out on tour with Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks. Their first stop together is at First Avenue in Minneapolis tonight, and at the end of the month they hit NYC to play not one, not two, but three sold-out shows together at Bowery Ballroom and Music Hall of Williamsburg, and it's right around that time that John is also playing his own show at Mercury Lounge with Deer Tick and Cotton Jones Basket Ride.
