Deer Tick, Jason Isbell @ Headliners – 3/13

We’ve already mentioned that Jason Isbell was coming back to town on March 13th and that a little band called Deer Tick was opening, but I’ve taken a little more time with the beautifully crafted Brooklyn-based opening band now, and now the opener has, for me, become the headliner.  Brooklyn Vegan called Deer Tick their favorite addiction of 2007, and Treble even described Deer Tick as a grittier male version of Joanna Newsom with his simultaneous dwelling within the old and the new and coming off as mature, yet fresh. Similarly, he will be playing other dates with Marissa Nadler (really wish we could have gotten her on this one). Regardless, I don’t think you can help but call it folk, but in truth it is much more than that. It may be best understood by simply having a listen for yourself…
