During a show at last week’s SXSW, Rhode Island-based Deer Tick performed a full set of Nirvana covers, billed, of course, as Deervana. It was a somewhat surprising move for a band mostly known for their alt-country tendencies, but even more surprising was just well they pulled it off. Singer-guitarist John McCauley sure does sound an awful lot like Kurt in the above video, huh? We’re pleased to announce they’ll be doing it again &#8212 at their Northside appearance, June 19 at Brooklyn Bowl. Tickets for the show are on sale, as are festival badges, which will also get you in, assuming you get there early because you know how these things work.
