The group started out in Rhode Island as a one-man project by singer John McCauley. He's since moved to Brooklyn and picked up some band members and the group released its second album this past summer. Their sound has been described as "booze-and-depression-soaked, homemade country blues" and "edgy, sparse Americana".
Deer Tick has become a bit of an indie sensation. They got an unexpected bit of exposure this past summer when Brian Williams (yep, the NBC anchor) interviewed them as part of his "BriTunes" series.
The band played what we hear was a packed show at the Madison Grille in Albany this past February. Their recent shows have been called "increasingly spontaneous and bizarre."
The Rev Hall show starts at 7 pm (opener: Jonny Corndawg). And it's only $12 (in advance).
