You may well be too late, but Atlanta-based psych-rock outfit Deerhunter is playing an intimate, un-publicized set in Durham tonight. The show is happening at the show at the Carrack (111 W. Parrish St.). Entry is only available via RSVP. As of about 9 a.m., there were 50 spots available. Shoot a message to firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested in securing one.
Deerhunter — which rides the ever-wandering whims of Bradford Cox, also the man behind Atlas Sound — has become a critical darling and fan favorite these past few years, grafting tender and graceful psych textures onto garage rock momentum, mixing and re-mixing the constituent elements with increasingly diverse results. The band's new album, Monomania, drops on May 7. Jackson Scott and Mas Ysa will provide support at the 9 p.m. show. Tickets are $8 with an RSVP. There may be a few tickets released at the door, but I really wouldn't risk it. No RSVPs will be accepted after 5 p.m.
