Deer Tick’s annual series of Newport Blues late night continued on Saturday night. Justin Townes Earle and Jason Isbell supported Deer Tick at the Newport, RI cafe and a mix of guests joined Deer Tick onstage during their show, which was tied to the nearby Newport Folk Fest.
As previously reported, on Friday Phosphorescent played a surprise show with Deer Tick and Bobby Bare Jr. emerged for a sit in during Deer Tick’s late night performance. On Saturday night, Justin Townes Earle and Jason Isbell supported Deer Tick during their show. Isbell joined Deer Tick during their performance for a few songs and jammed with the group on a song from their new album Negativity, “Trash.” Isbell also made his way over to the Jane Pickens Theater to join Dawes during their late night set.
After Isbell’s cameo with Deer Tick, Vanessa Carlton sang with the group on another Negativity song, “In Our Time.” Carlton, who is currently dating Deer Tick frontman John McCauley, also appears on the studio version of the song.
