Deer Tick & friends @ Brooklyn Bowl
Deer Tick have been up to a lot this month, and after just posting pics from their set at the Capitol Theatre last night (12/27), where they were supporting My Morning Jacket, we've got a slightly belated set of pics of the third and final night of their Brooklyn Bowl residency, where they performed an album and an EP in its entirety each night. Night 3 (12/19) saw the band, who were joined by a horn section, playing Divine Providence and the Tim EP. Here are those pictures.
Like the first two shows, Deer Tick's Ian O'Neill opened the show (no pics of his set), and for this one he was followed by Real Estate side project Alex Bleeker and the Freaks whose bluesier (than Real Estate) sound had them fitting in with Deer Tick a lot better than Real Estate or Ducktails would have. Then Yaps (whose Top 10 Albums of 2012 list is below) introduced author/comedian Dave Hill (who just gave us his Best of 2012 list) who introduced Deer Tick (shirtless, obviously) before they went on to play a booze-soaked set of Divine Providence, Tim and covers of Eddie Cochran's "Summertime Blues," Paul Westerberg's "Mr. Cigarette," Elliot Smith's "Between the Bar," Jim Croce's "Bad Bad Leroy Brown" and Beastie Boys' "Fight For Your RIght (To Party!)," plus a few other original tunes worked in. Members of Delta Spirit also joined for the encore.
As mentioned, Deer Tick play a sold out show at Maxwell's tonight (12/28) and NYE in Boston with Two Gallants.

Rumors began to surface last night via Twitter, but we've confirmed it is indeed true. We are amazed and excited to report that the infamous Tom Yaps now has a girlfriend! She is a real person and not a paid escort and her name is Jessica aka Jess. She likes music festivals, bandanas, jalapeno poppers and lives a mere 1500 miles from Tommy. There is a chance that Yaps may actually get laid now, but that is pure speculation. On the heels of ruining Lollapalooza for all of his friends this news does come as a bit of a surprise, but we're all very happy and excited for him. Bazinga!!!
