Deer Tick: December 5, 2012 Brooklyn Bowl – Flac/MP3/Streaming

December 12, 2012

Since we’ve been following Deer Tick almost from the beginning — from John McCauley as a solo performer, to the days as a trio, and even as a cover band, all the way up to their sold out shows at big venues, it seemed natural that we’d be there for what amounts to a month-long career retrospective at Brooklyn Bowl. Deer Tick will essentially be playing their entire catalog each Wednesday in December. Last week, the band played their second album Born on Flag Day and their EP More Fuel For the Fire straight through. While some of these songs haven’t been played in years, some in different arrangements, and some not at all, Deer Tick seemed quite comfortable with the material. Sure, there were a couple of false starts, but overall this show was just about as tight as they get and certainly as intense as a regular set. And just in case we’d thought they’d forsaken the first album, Deer Tick played six songs from War Elephant as an encore set.

Tonight’s show at Brooklyn Bowl will feature a complete performance of The Black Dirt Sessions and Holy Shit It’s Christmas EP.

I recorded this set with the hypercardioid Neumanns upfront and pointed at the stacks to avoid ambient noise and mixed it with a superb stereo feed from FOH Melanie. The sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!
