Deer Tick was one of the bands that I was looking forward to seeing at this years Lollapalooza. The band played a one hour set and I really dug their sound. Singer John McCauley was enjoying himself to say the least, and at one point asked the audience to join him for a pool party on the 8th floor at the Hilton directly behind the stage. I am not sure if anyone took him up on the offer, but I am sure the hotel wouldn’t have minded a few more people at the hotel. Here is a video of the band playing “Baltimore Blues No. 1” on The Late Show with David Letterman.

I was born, raised and currently reside in the Bucktown neighborhood of Chicago. I founded Scents and Subtle Sounds on August 18, 2009 after deciding I needed an avenue to share my passion for music. I saw my first concert in 1994 and hundreds of shows later (and counting), live music still does IT for me.
