Featuring John McCauley’s Tom Waits–level voice, coupled with Southern-tinged roots-and-country rollicking, no band better epitomizes the pleasures of the dog days of summer than Rhode Island’s Deer Tick. For free admission at the piers, you can spend a steamy afternoon singing along to rowdy favorites like “Let’s All Go to the Bar” or shedding a tear in your beer to the band’s wistful, folky numbers. Support comes from rising country star Margo Price, Anaïs Mitchell, Breanna Barbara and Chrome Pony.
