Deer Tick Announces “DudeSmash” Festival on June 16th in Providence, RI

Featuring Deer Tick, Turbo Fruits, Diamond Doves, Joe Fletcher and the Wrong Reasons, and more…

Deer Tick proudly announces their very own summer music festival, DudeSmash, presented by 95.5WBRU, happening Saturday, June 16, 2012 at The Met Courtyard in Providence.
The idea for the festival came about sometime last year while the band was stuck on I-95 north of Boston, says the band. “As the day drinking ensued and the hangovers were being willed away,DudeSmash was coming into fruition well before we knew it would exist. Stuck in bumper-to-bumper, we made a joke that this must be the traffic for the new Bro-Metal festival, ‘DudeSmash‘. The five of us vowed that if we were ever to curate a festival, no matter the nature of the event, we would name it after that joke, subjecting all of our fans to our misguided sense of humor.”
A year later, the idea has materialized into a fun summer festival. Deer Tick curated the event and chose many Rhode Island-based bands as well as bands from other cities around the country. Deer Tick cordially invites you to come out in June 16th for “a magical day of food, drink, music, and most importantly dude smashing.”
