Providence is proud of Deer Tick and is showing some hometown pride and love. A couple of years ago I remember going to Deer Tick's Myspace site where John McCauley posted something like help Deer Tick sell out. Today similar sentiments are touted "Any consideration for your McDonalds or Chevy commercial will be greatly appreciated" Deer Tick.
For many talented bands today without a national following the commercial route can be one way to make some dough. Deer Tick has gotten what I call a lucky break with Brian Williams interview and I'm happy for them. They are deserving of the attention and are capitalizing on the ride by utilizing social networks like facebook and Twitter. I love their updates from the road.
Favorite Deer Tick tweet so far: If you'd like to see us play in Reno tonight, please come pick us up in auburn, ca. Radiator exploded. We're the guys on the highway.
More hometown love for Deer Tick: Providence rockers are ready for a national breakthrough with Born On Flag Day as seen here on the cover of Providence Phoenix.
Some cool shit from the road. I just love Hank Williams and so does John McCauley!
