SLOW TRAVEL BERLIN
Deer Tick, Comet Club, 9pm
What began as a solo project nearly a decade ago slowly evolved into a full-fledged band, and now alt-country outfit Deer Tick is one of the better-known bands in indie’s Americana circles.
Named after a deer tick that lead singer and founding member John McCauley III found on his head while hiking, this quintet plays music that sounds more like it came from the Midwest than Providence, Rhode Island – it’s actual origin.
A five-song EP, “Tim,” is the latest notch on the Deer Tick discography belt, and it consists of tracks from the sessions of the prior full-length, available in hard copy only on tour as a 10-inch.
The band’s Berlin show comes in the middle of a European tour that stretches across a handful of club dates, with various festivals thrown in, and while it’s unlikely that cover band Deervana will make an appearance, fans should still expect one hell of a good time.Natalye Childress
