Deer Tick hops back to Utah
Music » Rhode Island band plays May 10 at Urban Lounge.

"We’re full grown men / We act like kids," is the chorus for Americana-influenced rock band Deer Tick’s 2011 song "The Bump," but the touring warriors are criss-crossing the country like men. The Rhode Island band, led by John J. McCauley III, released their EP "Tim" in February, with songs culled from the same sessions that produced the band’s acclaimed latest full-length, "Divine Providence." The sessions were so fruitful, McCauley said in an interview, because they were the first songs the band had ever recorded "at home" in Rhode Island, close to his favorite bar E & O Tap in Providence. McCauley said that when he isn’t touring, he indulges in his hobbies of cartooning and growing hot peppers, but then again, he’s always touring. "I never wanted to do anything else," McCauley said. Turbo Fruits, a Nashville four-piece, and Sallie Ford & the Sound Outside, which creates a goulash of rockabilly, blues and punk, open the show.
