Get ticketed for Deer Tick

Hailing from Providence, RI, Deer Tick is making a stop in Grinnell on their tour across the nation following the release of their new album, “Divine Providence.” Drawing together folk, blues, country and rock, Deer Tick captures folk and country in a way that can be understood by even the most urban of us. The band, founded by lead singer and guitarist John MacCauley, has had many lineup changes since its founding in 2004. The current members include Ian O’Neil on guitar, Chris Ryan on bass, Rob Crowell on keys and saxophone and Dennis Ryan on drums.

MacCauley’s voice has a distinct twang that amplifies the group’s indie-folk sound. On the new album, O’Neil and Ryan also take lead vocals on several tracks to create greater variation while maintaining the folksy sound that brought them to where they are today.  The band has made two appearances on “The Late Show with David Letterman” in the past year and a half and is now touring the country to promote “Divine Providence”.
This concert comes as a departure from the average show at Gardner because of its country feel.
“A lot of people have been talking about the lack of diversity in shows, and I think that this is pretty diverse,” said Pooj Padmaraj ’13, SGA Concerts Chair.

Unlike most Gardner concerts, this show will be ticketed. Admission is free and tickets were available to students outside of the dining hall every day this week from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Doors open at 8:30 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 11 and the show will begin at 9 p.m.
