Interesting piece in New York magazine (online at Vulture) about the Brooklyn crash pad for indie musicians being sponsored by Sour Patch Kids candy. In what their ad agency insists on calling “experiential marketing” certain “emerging artists” are invited to stay at The Patch for free with one condition: all digital content uploaded while in
(3.14) Providence band Deer Tick headlines this Friday at Lupo’s. They then head out to tour the country, and beyond, in support of their latest album ‘Negativity.’ (Oy, they have two nights in Toronto — keep that mayor away from our boy.) It would appear that the band has opted to stay home on March
What better place to release an album called “Divine Providence” than Pawtucket. Hey. Having said that, there may be no better venue for a Deer Tick show than the Met. John McCauley spoke with ProJo scribe Rick Massimo about the new music. “We wanted to do something a little louder, a little bit more fun,”
If it’s August, it’s time for the annual Newport Folk Festival, which draws 10,000 attendees and scores of musicians, staff and volunteers to modestly-sized Fort Adams State Park to enjoy legendary acts whose styles often soar beyond “folk” and occasionally even beyond definition. For the first time in NFF’s 52-year history, both days of the
For better or worse (flannel) we seem to be having a grunge moment, so what better time to revisit the Nirvana songbook. Locals Deer Tick did just that last Saturday night to at least one rave review — “SXSW: Who’s the Big Winner?” — at the SXSW festival in Austin. I’ve been to a number
Wednesday night at the 201 (201 Westminster Street) go see the Daredevil Christopher Wright. Also, at AS220 see Methuselah, ORCumentary, and Lobotomizer (Wall cancelled.). Also, in local news, Deer Tick will play on the Late Show with David Letterman tonight.
Get your shots — AS220 has just announced on its website that the special surprise guest stars for Saturday night are none other than Deer Tick! Foo Fest has returned this year with a new wrinkle — a $5 entrance fee. Apparently Empire Street will be cordoned off somehow and this will help keep the
And a hat. Great article by Rick Massimo in the Thursday ProJo highlighting the local acts representing at the Newport Folk Festival this weekend — The Low Anthem and Deer Tick. At last year’s folk festival in Newport, Ben Knox Miller and the rest of The Low Anthem weren’t on stage — they were backstage,
Local band Deer Tick made Jon Caramanica’s Playlist last Sunday in The New York Times. The following is not language I would use to describe my favorite musicians, but there you are. Caramanica praises (I think) their second album “Born on Flag Day”. . . . . . which sounds as if someone had run
Brian Williams has launched a new music feature–called, hilariously, BriTunes–in which the charmingly blah news anchor talks to some of his favorite new bands. (“Bar bands are best,” says his written intro on the MSNBC website.) First up, local boys Deer Tick, who everyone in the world seems to really like and whose Dylanesque appeal
As Deer Tick and the Low Anthem keep writing great songs and march towards national recognition — with plaudits from critics all around — Providence is going to start to signify something a bit different to music fans: A little less new-wave and noisy, a little more “roots rock,” “pure Americana,” Waits, Dylan and Guthrie.
