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.

Deer Tick at Cannon's Blackthorn - 6/13/13
Twang rockers Deer Tick, who just announced that their new album Negativity will be out via Partisan Records on 9/24 (listen to a new song below), have been on a tour that recently hit Chicago, and last week (6/13) came to Rockville Center, NY for a show at Cannon's Blackthorn. It was a Tommy Brull Foundation-presented "Shine A Light" benefit like the one Deer Tick played in Wantagh in 2011. The show was opened by Matt Barthel and The Midnight Snacks, and Vanessa Carlton joined Deer Tick for a song during their set. Pictures from Rockville Center (but none of Matt Barthel) are in this post.
Deer Tick's upcoming dates include Newport Folk Festival afterparties (but not the actual festival) and the fall installment of Boston Calling. All dates are listed, along with more pictures from the show, the new song, and a teaser for the new album, below...

John McCauley & special guest Vanessa Carlton
Deer Tick will complete their 2012 Brooklyn Bowl residency in NYC tonight (12/19).
At last week's show (12/12), the band was joined by support from Viking Moses and a solo set from Deer Tick guitarist Ian O'Neil (who earlier that day told us his 'best of 2012'). At that show the band focused their energies on The Black Dirt Sessions and the sillier Holy Shit it's Christmas EP. And there was even more to end the show:
After running through both those recordings as the main part of their set, Deer Tick returned for two encore segments; the second segment closed with segue from "Sink or Swim" into "Sleep Walk" and "La Bamba." Members of Deer Tick play in the side-project Diamond Rugs with Steve Berlin, whose group Los Lobos scored their mainstream breakout hit by covering the song. Their encores also included "Friday XIII," "Unwed Fathers," "Dirty Dishes," "Cheap Sunglasses," "Baltimore Blues No. 1," "Nevada," In addition, pop singer/songwriter Vanessa Carlton and regular Deer Tick collaborator Liz Isenberg both sang with the band on a few songs. Carlton joined Deer Tick for "Choir of Angles," "Piece By Piece," "Sad Sun" and "Unwed Fathers" while Isenberg appeared on "When She Comes Home," "Choir of Angles," "Piece By Piece," "Sad Sun" and "Friday XIII." During last week's Bowl show, the members of Deer Tick pulled a fan out of the audience to sing Isenberg's parts on "Friday XIII." -[Jambands]The first week of the residency had the band playing Born on Flag Day and More Fuel for the Fire EP (pics), and the residency comes to a close tonight when the band performs Divine Providence and Tim EP in full. Limited tickets will be available at the door.

UPDATE: We found even MORE
As mentioned, Thursday (9/5) is Fashion's Night Out. Basically another excuse to throw a party (in the name of bringing money and attention to fashion), the evening has become music-oriented in the last few years with bands playing stores all over New York City. There's a lot of stuff going on, including the Azealia Banks / DJ Cosmo performance at M.A.C. Soho we already told you about; plus Icona Pop and Maria Minerva at Urban Outfitters; Matchbox Twenty (!?!) at Bloomingdales; Haim at Topshop; La Sera at Helmut Lang; We Were Promised Jetpacks at Rockefeller Center; and Cyndi Lauper at Manolo Blahnik, just to name a few.
Below is a list of all the shows we could find with basic details and links where applicable/helpful. All shows are free and open to the public unless otherwise noted. Many have free food and booze as well. For more into visit the Fashion's Night Out website. Let us know what we missed, in the comments.
