Explaining their eight-year hiatus, Cristina says, "It's been two torturous terms of Republican disease and culture death. Now that we're free, it's the perfect time for us to bring back our own brand of sick in celebration."Tickets for the December 17th show are now on sale. More info and dates HERE.
Adds her live-in guitarist, Jon Spencer, "This whole 'change' thing isn't new... Boss Hog represented change with every album we made!"
Joining Boss Hog at the Bowery Ballroom is a full compliment of rhythm and grind, featuring the country punk moxie of Tennessee's Those Darlins, the titillating parade of burlesque goddesses Harvest Moon and Dirty Martini, and special guest DJ Nick Zinner of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

"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....

"Slim, in his tight gray floodpants, black boots, and porkpie hat, looked like he had hopped off a train cart filled with hobos to get to this show. But while there seem to be a lot of alt-folk rock acts out there today aching to perfect the outward persona of the Dust Bowl refugee with a busker's ingenue, Slim actually has the songs and the showmanship to pull it off without reducing himself to mere novelty." [a review from St. Louis]Langhorne Slim, Heartless Bastards, and Those Darlins played both Bowery Ballroom and Music Hall of Williamsburg this weekend. More pictures from the Bowery show below...

Fat Possum Records is excited to announce that the Heartless Bastards are set to release their third record on January 20, 2009. The record is called The Mountain and was produced by Mike McCarthy (Spoon, Trail of Dead, Patty Griffin). The Mountain delivers the swamped-up rock howl that fans have come to love from the critically acclaimed Heartless Bastards, but it also weaves in an adventurous sonic evolution, expanding their three-piece rock palate by adding pedal steel, mandolin, banjo and strings, all in support of Erika Wennerstrom's transcendent voice that Rolling Stone once described as "channeling all the swagger and spit of a young Robert Plant."Heartless Bastards are on tour and will play two NYC shows with NYC's own Langhorne Slim this weekend. Friday night they'll be at Bowery Ballroom. Saturday it's Music Hall of Williamsburg. Those Darlins open both shows. More dates and pictures from their performance at the recent Austin City Limits music festival, below...
