Deer Tick Held Up En Route To Newport Folk Festival

The band Deer Tick is heading back home for the Newport Folk Festival, but apparently they got held up en route.

According to the band’s Twitter feed, the musicians were kicked off a U.S. Airways flight for trying to board with a guitar.

To which festival organizers tweeted back, “They messed with the wrong folking band”

The band said they’ve since hitched a ride on the train. Originally based in Providence, Deer Tick has become a staple of the Newport Folk Fest. They’re scheduled to play the festival Saturday.
