Deer Tick - 2 Secret Shows in Newport, RI

ALL-STAR MUSIC BENEFITS
Two Secret Shows in Newport, RI
Fri 07/29 and Sat 07/30



2 SECRET SHOWS - Deer Tick's guitarist, vocalist and chief songwriter John McCauley sings less like a mid-20s indie rocker, and more like a 60-something folk troubador. The alt-country style of their music is well-suited to his gravelly vocals and the weary world view of an old soul. The loneliness, the regrets, the self-loathing... "Raindrops like bullets on my fragile skin; insecurities I've had, I keep them within." - 20 Miles. This is from their latest album, "The Black Dirt Sessions", which features guitarist Ian O'Neil (formerly of Titus Andronicus), who joined the band in the summer of 2008. While their recorded music tends to be thoughtful and introspective, their live shows can be raucous, wild affairs. - Julie Stoller

McCauley was already slated to play the Folk Festival in an official capacity as a member (with Matt from Delta Spirit and Taylor of Dawes) of Middle Brother - perhaps, if not likely, the greatest indie folk supergroup. Their appearance at the festival is rumored to perhaps be their last run together as a group. Deer Tick, Delta Spirit and Dawes will soldier on...

Deer Tick will be in Houston in September for Bestfest. I'm not sure which day, but the festival is 9/24 and 9/25, I think.
