Alternative rock band Deer Tick has evolved in style over the years, redirecting into the genres of outlaw country and Appalachian folk, with blends of grunge, pop, punk and blues melded in.
The Rhode Island rockers will perform at the Charleston Music Hall Saturday as part of their “Twice Is Nice” tour in support of two new albums released this month, “Deer Tick Vol. 1” and “Deer Tick Vol. 2.” The first album showcases the band’s edgy roots-rock/folk sensibilities, and the second focuses more on power-pop and garage rock-type numbers.
Saturday’s show will consist of two sets, the first being stripped-down and acoustic and the second set being full-on and electric.
In keeping with the evening’s theme of genre bending, comedian Chris Crofton will open the show. Once said of Crofton’s style, he “mixes the social commentary of Richard Pryor and Bill Hicks, the absurdity of Steve Martin and the pacing and stage presence of Lenny Bruce.”
WHEN: 9 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 23
WHERE: Charleston Music Hall, 37 John St.
