Lounge Act Wednesday: Deer Tick, Gift of Gab, Puscifer & more



Hump day arrives with one of the most anticipated live gigs of the fall, and then some.---

Deer Tick (pictured) is the hottest rock band to come out of Rhode Island probably since Throwing Muses way back when. The rootsy crew is headlining Wednesday at The Urban Lounge. Guards and Trappers are also on the bill, so plan on a late night, but a great one.

Gift of Gab used to come through all the damned time, but it's been a spell. Thankfully, SLC is back on the Blackalicious man's radar, and he's headlining at Bar Deluxe Wednesday night.

At the State Room, it's Gaelic Storm delivering a little Celtic flavor, with dashes of reggae and bluegrass, as well, for their headlining gig.

The Capitol Theatre has a real treat in Puscifer, the art-rock side-project of Tool main man Maynard James Keenan.

The non-musically inclined will want to check in at The King's English for a reading by Jill B. Jones, author of Casino Women: Courage in Unexpected Places, an in-depth look at ladies who work in the corporate gaming industry. The event starts at 7 p.m.
