Story and interview by Kirsten Ferguson
We caught up with Deer Tick keyboardist Rob Crowell “somewhere between” Tennessee and Rhode Island as he and Deer Tick founder/frontman John McCauley drove from their new hometown of Nashville to their old stomping grounds of Providence to pick up the rest of the band (Dennis Ryan, Chris Ryan and Ian O’Neil) and start a tour that kicks off in Saratoga Springs on Saturday night at the Putnam Den.
Q: You’ve played in the Capital Region several times at this point — Jillian’s in Albany last winter, the Restoration Festival, Valentine’s and a few other places before that. Any memories in particular that stand out?
A: I don’t totally remember to be honest. I think the last time we were there it was a bit of a blur. It was the last show of a long tour. I remember having a good time though.
