Deer Tick

The 40 Watt Club has announced a big addition to its September calendar: On Wednesday, Sept. 17, Rhode Island alt-country act Deer Tick will perform a free show, with support from local troubadour T. Hardy Morris

All that’s required for entry to the show, which is sponsored by cable conglomerate Charter—and by the way, Charter, why the hell has my Internet been so spotty lately, like, it totally goes out for 10–15 minutes at a time, I mean, what is even going on with that—is an RSVP.

RSVP here.

Morris and Deer Tick are no strangers to one another. Morris recently wrapped up a quick jaunt on the road with the friendly folk-rockers, and he also plays with the band’s John McCauley and Robbie Crowell in the garage-y supergroup Diamond Rugs.
