CapLive presents…
Deer Tick
Special Guest: The Districts

Touring in support of their eagerly anticipated new album, Negativity, CapLive alumni Deer Tick returns to rock the Capitol Theatre stage!

Country soul and Delta blues, old-time gospel and hardcore punk, it’s all in there. Each successive Deer Tick record reveals more colors and increased perspective, the rave-ups get wilder, the ballads more knowing and hurt. And then, just when you think you had ‘em figured out, Divine Providence sands off the country grain to expose the Tick’s inner punk. From the Twin/Tone garage-pop perfection of “Walking Out That Door” to the unshakable “Main Street,” the album is McCauley’s finest moment thus far, fully pointing Deer Tick towards the universality of their heroes.

“On a set of howling rockers, frontman John McCauley pulls a genre jailbreak as impressive as the time that Ryan Adams ditched Whiskeytown to pledge his love for Morrissey and electric Dylan.”
-Rolling Stone

“If this sounds like a rave, then you read it correctly. Divine Providence, music that the Creator Himself may have sent, is the best, funniest, most detailed, thrilling blast of rock and roll since The Hold Steady’s Boys And Girls In America. It’ll have you dancing while you’re thinking about the lyrics and positing all kinds of intellectual theories as you listen to its very danceable grooves. In fact, you won’t know which one to do first. And the coolest thing? You will not care.”
-American Songwriter

“The set’s true patron saint: a punk-rock singer-songwriter who does as he damn well pleases”
-Rolling Stone

“Deer Tick- I love them.”

The Districts
“The Districts are a young four-piece from Lancaster County, PA channeling a rock-and-soul vibe with singer Rob Grote’s searing voice blending with instrumental interplay. They do the very Pixies loud-quiet-LOUD thing, but in a more textured way – a thundering swell cuts, leaving a clean guitar arpeggio floating in space as Grote catches his breath; the verses build in waves, with the heaviness sometimes derived just from Braden Lawrence’s drums. Grote is an intense stage presence – he kicks, stomps and snarls, both at the mic and far away – but guitarist Mark Larson and bassist Connor Jacobus hold their own, shuffling and bobbing and giving the overall band a dynamic stage presence.”
