This year’s Newport Folk Festival is just two months out. Today, tickets for an amazing Deer Tick hosted after party on Friday, Saturday and Sunday went on sale…and already sold out.
Deer Tick will be curating three Newport Folk Fest after parties at the Newport Blues Cafe on July 27-29. According to the band’s publicist, there are going to be some very special guests announced in the weeks leading up to the festival. All proceeds of these benefit shows will go to the Newport Festivals Foundation and Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation.
We didn’t make it to the after parties last year, but there was much regret in seeing the tweets from them. Last year, some of the guests included Dawes, Delta Spirit’s Matt Vasquez, M. Ward for a brief “La Bamba” guitar solo. You can find out more (and see the SOLD OUT tage) on the Newport Blues Café Web site. Also, check out the flier below.
