Tuesday To-Do: Deer Tick

DEER TICK
9 p.m., Sticky Fingerz. $10.

With its front man's instantly recognizable voice sounding off like a creaky wooden rudder through the band's driving, desperate Americana shuffle, Deer Tick has been on the receiving end of the music press' “oohs” and “aahs” since it went from playing house shows (including a number in Little Rock) to being the toast of SXSW overnight after a 2007 debut, a gorgeous, home-recorded affair called “War Elephant,” found an audience on the Internet's tangle of music message boards and blogs. (It was an unexpected sensation that gave way to one of the most surreal music interviews in recent memory when the band sat down with a vocal fan in NBC Nightly News' Brian Williams.) The act's taken the vocal cadence, relaxed finger plucking and facial hair of John Prine, combined it with a vague grunge demeanor and found itself leading way for a nation full of young Americana acts. This show has been heavy with buzz since it was announced months ago, so expect a big crowd. The guys and I in Frown Pow'r and the trio of Jonathan Wilkins and the Reparations open the show with two different, local takes on that Americana stuff we just talked about.
