ALTERNATIVE | Deer Tick 

When you consider the popularity and radio play The Lumineers have received, it's hard to grasp how Deer Tick has not garnered the same attention. Add in the fact Deer Tick had several albums out before The Lumineers debuted and it's downright confusing. The alternative-rock quintet from Providence, R.I., molds rock 'n' roll, Americana and folk together to make simply eargasmic tunes. Lead singer John McCauley delivers with a great folk voice, one that sounds amazing and can be easily understood — Bob Dylan, I'm looking at you — and it gels well with the band's melodious instrumentals. Deer Tick is infamous for hosting crazy Newport Folk Festival after-parties, so you can be sure these guys know how to put on a good show.

Deer Tick performs with The Hold Steady on Monday, April 21, 8 p.m. at Water Street Music Hall, 204 N. Water St. Tickets are $20. Waterstreetmusic.com.
