But the biggest one, perhaps, arrives September 13, when Nirvana’s In Utero turns the big 2-0 with not only a fancy-schmancy deluxe album re-issue, but the vaunted tribute show treatment as well. Shooting to the top of the hat-tip list is today’s word that Providence alt-country dudes Deer Tick will re-create the record the night of its anniversary at Brooklyn Bowl in New York. Tickets to Deervana go on sale Friday. They will likely go f-a-s-t.
September, as a whole, will be a busy month for John J McCauley and company, as their new LP Negativity — a distant relative of the “Negative Creep” — is out September 24 on Partisan Records, and the band plays the first-day of Boston Calling Music Fest on Saturday, September 7 at City Hall Plaza in Boston.
Perhaps, just maybe, we’ll get a taste of the In Utero set here in town. “Pennyroyal Tea” would be a fine way for Deer Tick to end their mid-afternoon set, we think.
