Deer Tick, Dawes & The Backwater Racket RESCEDULED

From Manic: Hey everyone. We just got word that the Deer Tick show scheduled for tonight at The Space has been postponed due to illness. We are as bummed as you are! The show has been rescheduled for November 5th. All 7/23 tickets will be honored. Ticket refunds are available from point of purchase up until 8/23. Thank you all for understanding.

Deer Tick is a rockin band from Providence, RI. From humble beginnings in 2004 as a drum and guitar duo, the band has progressed to a quartet. With the release of their albums War Elephant and Born on Flag Day, they've won a lot of praise for their mean blend of roots rock. Lead singer John McCauley lends his unique vocals to heartfelt songs to give these guys their great sound. I'm sure you'll be hearing a lot more about these guys soon.

Dawes is an Americana quartet from California. They play some really awesome tunes, remeniscient of The Band, My Morning Jacket and the like. They even recently played a Daytrotter session which you can find right here. Their album North Hills is worth checking out.

Both bands are currently touring all over the USA and Canada together, with a lot of great shows in New England coming up, including Portland's famed Space Gallery and Northampton's Iron Horse. Deer Tick will even be playing the famed Newport Folk Festival on August 2nd!

The Backwater Racket hail from Fairfield, CT, they describe themselves as "Porch Music." It's a very fitting description, as they play a lot of folk and bluegrass themed songs. They've got a new album coming out soon, and from what you can hear on their myspace page, it seems like it's going to be pretty damn good.
