We have always personally liked Deer Tick, all the way back to meeting John McCauley for the first time in early 2008. He seemed genuine and the rootsy nature of the band’s music reflected that sincerity. As Deer Tick has grown in stature and size, its been easy to root for them. So when we were contacted by the Tommy Brull Foundation about recording their charity concert on Long Island, it came as no surprise the Deer Tick had agreed to headline the show. The Foundation was organized in 2008 to celebrate the life of Tommy who passed away at the age of 23, and it supports a variety of causes in his memory that benefit disabled children. On Wednesday at Mulcahy’s in Wantagh, Deer Tick truly gave it their all for the cause, as they performed a non-stop set that spanned two hours and contained thirty songs. The set culled tracks from all three of their releases, and also featured five new songs that will appear on an album to be released in October. We are streaming one of the stronger new tracks “Funny Word”. The band also let it all hang out and played a bunch of eclectic covers, including the Replacements song we posted on Friday.

Please support the Tommy Brull Foundation and the important work they do, and donate to the Foundation [HERE].

I recorded this set with a very well-balanced soundboard feed mixed with the DPA cardioid microphones placed at the center of the room. The sound quality is superb. Enjoy!
