Deer Tick Curates DudeSmash Festival for This Weekend

Joe Fletcher and the Wrong Reasons, Knife Party and Diamond Doves are among the dudes who will be smashing on stage at the Deer Tick-curated DudeSmash festival this weekend at the Met Courtyard in Providence, R.I.

Traffic moving at the speed of a glacier inspired the bro-riffic name, the band tells “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.”

The dudes of Deer Tick are nothing if not men of their word. Check out the DudeSmash lineup below and buy tickets for the bargain price of $22.50 here.
