Smart Bets: Deer Tick

BET DeerTIck byAnna Webber

There’s something refreshingly honest about the way singer-songwriter John McCauley of Deer Tick delivers his unapologetic lyrics. His brazen vocals are backed by upbeat instrumentals. In an interview on NPR’s “World Café,” McCauley said that a lot of personal turmoil provided inspiration for the band’s fifth album, Negativity, released in 2013.  The Providence, Rhode Island-based quartet appears at The Orange Peel in the middle of a tour that spans the U.S. and goes international this summer. Saturday, May 17, at 9 p.m. Langhorne Slim (roots rockers and regular visitors to Asheville) co-bill; The Districs (a Fat Possum-signed quartet from Pennsylvania) open. $15 advance, $17 day of show.  Photo by Anna Webber — Katie Souris
