Deer Tick have announced the ‘In-Your-House-Party’ livestream, which will be streamed live from Fort Adams in Newport, R.I. The stream will occur on Saturday, Aug. 1. which is when the Newport Folk Festival would have been in full swing, had it not been canceled due to COVID-19.
“Friends and lovers, while we won’t be doing our typical after parties at the Blues Cafe this year, our after parties will be coming straight into your homes on August 1st via the World Wide Web,” wrote the band in an announcement post.
In addition to Deer Tick themselves, the livestream will feature Leon Bridges, Robert Ellis, Sharon Van Etten, The Tallest Man On Earth and Courtney Marie Andrews.
The event is ticketed, and proceeds will go toward the Newport Festival Foundation. Deer Tick’s announcement comes along with Newport’s Folk On Revival livestream.
