Deer Tick this Wednesday at Rev Hall

deer tick band

Not arachnids.

We mentioned this a while back, but it's worth another word (or 100): Deer Tick is playing Rev Hall this Wednesday.

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).

Also: just to make sure Troy gets a sufficient dose of Brooklyn and hipsterdom, the Fiery Furnaces are playing Rev Hall on Friday. Tickets are $12.

Wait, whaaaaaaat?... The Fiery Furnaces are playing Troy? Thank you again AOA!

Nippertown or AOA should do a ohmyrockness.com spinoff for the Capital Region. Posting about upcoming shows is great (and saved me from missing Grizzly Bear and now Fiery Furnaces), but a calendar format would be soooo nice.

Beards get in half priced!

Deer Tick will be a GREAT show. they rock.

... I have all the resources to insure my child ultimately will be safe, with people I trust and in fun and enriching programs during her breaks and yet I find the entire process daunting at best. Our system is not helping kids or adults be their best in school when where they are for upwards of 4-6 hours a day has to be figured out on a day by day basis.
