Premiere: Deer Tick, 'Let's All Go to the Bar' (live)
Providence-based roots rockers debut footage from fiery 2011 tour

When Rhode Island roots-punk quintet Deer Tick hit the road last fall for a short California tour in support of Divine Providence, they brought along a special guest: video director Ryan Henriquez, who recruited a film crew to capture the band's performances at their fiery best. Starting with a Halloween gig in San Diego, the tour continued up the California coast from Santa Barbara and L.A. to San Francisco's Independent. Divine Providence's "Let's All Go to the Bar" served as not just a final encore but a raucous rallying call, in the Replacements' tradition. As Henriquez explains it, the song "felt like a victory march, complete with flying objects, smashed instruments and a dozen or so folks on stage guzzling red wine from bottles the size of water coolers."

"Let's All Go to the Bar" appears on Deer Tick's most recent album, Divine Providence.
