Trampled By Turtles, Deer Tick

Woodland Park Zoo North Meadow Phinney
Wed June 27, 6 pm All Ages


It's been said that the only legitimate "alt-country" music comes from folks raised on the old-timey stuff and exposed to rock subcultures later in their lives. It's a dismissive rule of thumb that could unfortunately slight some undeserving acts. Case in point: Deer Tick. Who knows which came first for these boys—maybe it was Johnny Cash, maybe it was Johnny Ramone. But it's hard to doubt the honesty of their ragged electrified brand of Americana. Their forlorn tales of whiskey and women may be nothing new, but folk and country have never been about reinventing the wheel, but about resonating that common chord that bonds us all together. And there's something in John McCauley's voice and that rough-around-the-edges guitar... I'm a believer.
