Delorean will return to the States for a few big-city shows around their April 17th appearance at Coachella. For NYC, that means April 21st at Brooklyn Bowl. Tickets go on sale at noon. All dates are listed below.
Delorean (the Spanish dance band) should not be confused with Dolorean (spelled with an "o" instead of an "e") aka Portland's Al James. Al just released "The Unfazed" via Partisan Records last week...
"The Portland country-rock band Dolorean perfected its soft-focus sound over its first three albums, serving up song after song of loping rhythms, brushed drums, hushed guitars, rippling piano, and the whispery regret of singer-songwriter Al James. Dolorean's fourth LP, The Unfazed, doesn't vary the band's pitch, but it does put a little more zip on it. Opening with the nimble "Thinskinned"--with its line about hopping into a tanked-up car and hitting the road with an argumentative partner--The Unfazed expresses how wide-open vistas can be spoiled by "one burr under the saddle," and it does so through music that blends the dreamy psychedelia of Pink Floyd with the yearning balladry of Gene Clark."You can listen to a song over at NPR, and watch a live video below.
Dolorean also have a tour scheduled - a much larger one than Delorean though it includes no NYC dates. It does however include SXSW and a west coast run with Castanets (who currently call Portland home) and Holy Sons (also from Portland, also signed to Partisan). All dates for both spellings of the bands that share a name with the car from Back to the Future, below...

Delorean @ Market Hotel during CMJ (more by Leia Jospe)
The Delorean/Miike Snow tour that's happening this March and April has added another NYC date. It appears that their March 26th show at Music Hall of Williamsburg and March 27th show at Webster Hall have both sold out. They've now added a third show on Sunday, March 28th at Bowery Ballroom. Tickets go on AmEx presale Wednesday at noon; regular sale Friday (1/15) at noon.
In December, Delorean (with an "e") was featured on ABC News, who wrote "the Spanish band is working on a full length album, with an expected release in March of 2010 or later (they're still looking for a US label)." That segment and clips from recent Delorean gigs and updated dates are below...

Deer Tick @ Prospect Park in August (more by Chris La Putt)
This Halloween Deer Tick will be performing at Brooklyn Bowl and like you (presumably) they'll be going in costume - the band will perform as the Sex Pistols for the night. Joining them will be a "special guest" band playing the songs of Sonic Youth and Dangerous: All Metal Tribute to Michael Jackson. There's free admission with a costume. Otherwise it's $5, and tickets are on sale at noon.
Deer Tick play the Partisan Records tour, which kicked off Monday, Oct. 19th and includes a CMJ showcase at Bowery Ballroom on October 22nd (now sold out unless you have a CMJ badge). The entire Partisan Records roster (minus one) are along for the ride. That includes Chris Denny & the Natives, who are playing the BV day party at Pianos earlier that day (Denny just interviewed Ben Nichols of Lucero right here), Holy Sons (Emil Amos of Om), Dolorean (not to be confused with Delorean) and (on half the dates including NYC) Paleo. All of those acts are included on the free sampler from the label posted above.
All tour dates, a Halloween show poster, the sampler tracklist and updated Deer Tick tour dates are below...
Deer Tick in a sombrero on a boat (pic by Katie Alexander)
Deer Tick played a boat on September 7th (Labor Day). More specifically, they played a Rock Off Concert Cruise with opener Jonny Corndawg (an old friend and fellow songwriter f Tick frontman John McCauley). Videos from the gig are posted below. Earlier in the weekend, Deer Tick played a set at The Positive Jam in Ithaca...
True-to-heart American music with a kind of dark poetic twist, Deer Tick sounded like the bluesy rock that fuels long nights at the bar talking about your true love, the job you lost, etc. Far from being a stereotype, however, John McCauley's slightly nasal, drawling voice gave new meaning to any preconceived ideas about country or folk music. The audience, which on Sunday was slow to get going, lingered in the shade during Deer Tick's set. Their lyrics encouraged a slow roll rather than rambunctious dancing -- "I've lived lies all my life / and I've been living here a long, long time / And it's been coming down a while now," Cauley sang in "Art Isn't Real." Introspective, indeed. [The Cornell Daily Sun]Coming up, the band have added a week-long Partisan Records tour to their already-extensive upcoming dates. The NYC part of that tour will happen as part of CMJ at Bowery Ballroom on October 22nd. Deer Tick share the bill with Christopher Denny, Dolorean, Holy Sons and Paleo. Tickets go on sale Friday, September 11th at noon.
Christopher Denny is the latest addition to the Partisan Records family, and was recently seen actually on stage with Deer Tick in Prospect Park.
