“Main Street” (Live On Letterman) (Video)

    The new Deer Tick album Divine Providence is set for release just prior to Halloween, and the band showed up on David Letterman’s show last night to perform “Main Street” from it. Singer John McCauley continues his fascination with gruff, blues-y rock here, all tied to a “Be My Baby” beat and organ tones reminiscent of the Band. It’s hard to fathom the appeal of Deer Tick when the source material they use is so transparent and readily available, although it’s possible they function as one of those entry-level gateway bands that cause people to check out other stuff. If so, their job was thoroughly well done on Letterman last night. [via The Audio Perv]
