Description

Tommy Stinson dropped by the Brooklyn Bowl Sunday night to join Deer Tick at the third of their six 10th anniversary shows. On Friday, the Providence band had covered NRBQ's Tiddlywinks with Marshall Crenshaw and Jana Hunter; on Saturday, they did Lou Reed's Transformer with Sharon Van Etten and Patrick Stickles; and here, there were attempting Meet the Beatles!, the Fab Four's second U.S. release, with a little help from Stinson, Dawes' Taylor Goldsmith and Felice Brothers' James Felice. Over their decade-long tenure as one of the preeminent roots-leaning groups in indie rock, Deer Tick have earned a special adoration for their ability to effortlessly tackle a wide repertoire of cover material. With frontman John McCauley serving as John Lennon and guitarist Ian O'Neil taking the McCartney parts, the usually scrappy garage band opened the evening as a harmonizing three-piece pop outfit, running through overlooked Beatles gems like "It Won't Be Long" and "Till There Was You." http://www.rollingstone.com/music/live-reviews/deer-tick-meet-the-beatles-anniversary-show-20141229 http://www.wochit.com
