It seems as though super-groups are all the rage these days, as musicians seek free-form projects and allow themselves the opportunity to collaborate with pals -- a trend I find truly wonderful. What's more fun than seeing your favorite musician enjoying their talents and furthering their art?
As a huge fan of Deer Tick, with an admitted crush on front-man John McCauley, I'm flat-out excited to see what comes of this new project with Taylor Goldsmith (Dawes) and Matthew Vasquez (Delta Spirit). While they debuted their collaboration with a premier performance at last year's SXSW as MG&V, they'll be returning this year, slightly more polished for a showcase on March 19th at Auditorium Shores with Man Man, Bright Eyes & The Felice Brothers.
It almost feels like someone made this showcase just for me. Hopefully there will be some heart-warming collaborations between the acts. I fully anticipate a bro-down for the books. After all, it wasn't long ago I got to witness Deer Tick join The Felice Brothers for a boot-stompin' encore at Emo's.
