Deer Tick

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.

More pics and the setlist from Lincoln Center, below...

Deer Tick

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...

Katrina and the Waves

Back in 2010 we asked tUnE-YarDs, Fucked Up, Sam Amidon, Doveman, and Deer Tick to cover songs by Katrina & the Waves for a tribute CD in celebration of their hit song "Walking on Sunshine" (which Sam and FU both covered). We released those five tracks online, but the EP never got an official digital release until now! Find all five songs, along with a bonus one recorded by Dawn Landes, at iTunes, Amazon, Spotify AND RDIO.

Meanwhile, Sam Amidon just released an album on Nonesuch and is touring. Fucked Up play Governors Ball this weekend and House of Vans this summer. Doveman aka Thomas Bartlett just played with the National at Barclays Center and is producing a new record for Dawn Landes who is currently touring Europe but will be back to play Rockwood Music Hall on July 9. Tune-Yards recently played the Tibet House Benefit and played with Roomful of Teeth at Lincoln Center where Thomas Bartlett (Dovemen)'s band (one of the many) The Gloaming is playing outside in July. Deer Tick recently played two nights in Chicago and is on the lineup of a new Boston fest happening this fall.

Deer Tick & friends @ Brooklyn Bowl
Deer Tick

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.

Pics of night 1 when they performed Born on Flag Day and More Fuel for the FIre EP are HERE and pics of night 2 when they performed The Black Dirt Sessions and Holy Shit it's Christmas EP are HERE.

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.

More pics and Deer Tick's setlist from the third show at Brooklyn Bowl, and Yaps' Top 10 list, below...

John McCauley & special guest Vanessa Carlton
Deer Tick

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.

During the Born On Flag Day song "Friday XIII" the band pulled a fan out of the audience to sing Liz Isenberg's studio parts. The night closed with an extended encore featuring "Standing at the Threshold," "Art Isn't Real (City of Sin)," "These Old Shoes," "Spend the Night," "What Kind of Fool Am I?" and "Ashamed." -[Jambands]

You can stream that song below. Jessa and Joel are both on board for the release show at LPR and it wouldn't be a surprise if Oneohtrix Point Never, who just played MoMA PS1 with Ducktails, shows up too.
