Watch Deer Tick Perform “The Dream’s In the Ditch” on Conan

Sep 26th, 2013 in Music


Having just watched Deer Tick’s performance of The Dream’s In The Ditch (off their just-released album Negativity) last night on Conan, we’re a tick confused.  Enthralled and impressed, but still confused.  Every time we’ve previously caught the band live they have blazed and swaggered across the stage somewhat akin to The Replacements of yore, and evinced none of the refinement and composure to be found on the Conan performance below.  Like Mikey of yore, we gotta say:  we like it!  Deer Tick will soon hit the road in support of Negativity.  The tour dates follow the performance below.  They also play the UCLA Bruin Plaza today if you’re in the vicinity.  And ferheavensake, go buy Negativity HERE.

  • I like it too. A lot. Having said that I like their blaze and swagger as well. So, let’s hope this more refined side is an addtion to, and not a replacement of, what they brought previously.
