Deer Tick, the Providence, R.I., alt-country outfit that’s the brainchild of guitarist John McCauley, will play the West End Cultural Centre Wednesday, Oct. 16.
Deer Tick is touring to promote their album, Negativity, which hits the shelves Sept. 24. McCauley wrote the songs in 2012 while his father was sent to prison after pleading guilty to conspiracy and tax fraud. McCauley’s wedding engagement also fell apart that year, collapsing under the weight of his excessive behaviour, according to a press release from the band’s publicist.
Tickets, $23 plus fees, are available through ticketfly.com. Robert Ellis will be the opening act.
