Deer Tick Named Time Out Chicago’s Critic’s Pick
The fine folks over at Time Out Chicago have named the upcoming Deer Tick show at Metro as a critic’s pick and for good reason. Now touring in support of 2013’s ‘Negativity,’ Deer Tick’s fifth full-length on Partisan, the band is a blast to catch live. As Time Out says, “those seeking rollicking, Southern-tinged roots and alt-country rock (or those who really miss the Replacements) will not leave this gig disappointed.”
Coming from a solo duo named My Other Face started in 2002, Deer Tick showcases John McCauley’s grizzly, whiskey-soaked vocals and guitars, highlighting the ups and downs of American life. ‘Negativity’ was recorded with Los Lobos’ Steve Berlin in Portland, and the basis actually stems from a rough time in 2012 for McCauley himself.
The critics have this one correct as one that you don’t want to miss. Deer Tick graces the Metro stage once again on August 23. Tickets can be purchased here.
