Deer Tick and Delta Spirit continued their 2021 FriendSHIP tour on Monday, kicking off the first of two shows at New York, NY’s Webster Hall.
The bands, which have co-headlined the FriendSHIP tour since late October, recently came off shows at Philadelphia, PA’s Union Transfer (11/20), and Washington, D.C.’s 9:30 Club (11/19). Deer Tick, the indie/alt-rock quartet comprised of John McCauley, Christopher Ryan, Dennis Ryan, and Ian O’Neil, found itself relatively close to home for the show, less than 200 miles from its base in Providence, RI. Delta Spirit, on the other hand, found itself thousands of miles away from its nest and the tour-opening city of San Diego, CA. The five-piece outfit traversed the country with its Deer Tick compadres over the last three weeks, spreading its indie-rock offerings across the East and West Coasts, the Midwest, and everything in between.

Tonight, November 23rd, both bands will return to Webster Hall for the final stop on the FriendSHIP tour. Looking forward, Delta Spirit will return west with no more dates on the band’s 2021 calendar, while Deer Tick will head home to Providence for a show at Columbus Theatre on Wednesday night (11/24) with The Huntress and The Holder of Hands. On Friday, the band will return to the same venue for another performance, this time with Nova One. Head to Deer Tick’s website for tickets and more tour information.
