Fans of acoustic and electric in Birmingham, Alabama were in for a treat on September 17th as Deer Tick played to both styles at Saturn Birmingham. The Rhode Island based band opened the night with an acoustic set before finishing the night with an electric one. The double shot was done in support of their latest albums, "Deer Tick, Vol. 1" and "Deer Tick, Vol. 2", which were released just a matter of days ago.
Because both albums were just released on September 15th, this particular show by Deer Tick represented the beginning of the support tour. The crowd was good and the setting was right to start things off even with it being on a Sunday night. I was only able to catch a bit of the acoustic set, but it had the right amount of energy to hook the crowd for the duration of the evening. As for the production, things were clear and light wonderfully, which I always do appreciate. Things didn't need to be over the top for the acoustic set so the look and feel was just right.
