Deer Tick's Acoustic Clusterfolk Newport After Party Previews 'Vol. 1'

Deer Tick performed the entirety of the acoustic album (one of a pair of forthcoming releases) and have announced a fall tour.

Deer Tick
City: Newport, RI
Venue: Jane Pickens Theater
Date: 2017-07-29

Deer Tick can be found practically everywhere during Newport Folk Festival. Beyond a guest appearance on the main stage, the group had four after parties during a three-day music festival. No one can suggest they take it too easy. The same may be said about their time in the studio too. On September 15th, Deer Tick will release two entirely different albums (on Partisan) dubbed Vol 1. and Vol 2.. The first is an acoustic disc. The second is rock.

I got to hear an advance of both albums ahead of Newport, and found myself fixated on the acoustic disc. I've always enjoyed Deer Tick, but this was the first album of theirs I've repeatedly listened to in a long time. And when I realized the band would be playing the entirety of Vol 1. at the Jane Pickens Theater at the Clusterfolk after-party, I went to check it John McCauley, Chris Ryan, Dennis Ryan and Ian O'Neill do their thing in matching Hawaiian shirts (think Trader Joe's). They proceeded to play through the entirety of Vol 1., interspersing some chatter and insight into the album, and followed up with some other hits, plus a duet between McCauley and his wife Vanessa Carlton.

The band is set to tour the United States for three months in support of the records. Check out the tour dates below as well as some photos from their Newport aftershow.

The Rebel Rockin' Roots of Punk Rock Humor

Humorists have served as the conscience of cultures ever since (and before) court jesters ridiculed omnipotent royalty for its hypocrisy, pomposity, and corruption. Punk continues to fulfill that essential social role in relation to the powers-that-be of the modern world.
