The Deer Live on KDNK

Feb 24, 2017

"I'm drinking up morphine/Straight from the vial/Me in my darkness/You in my mind."

They were in town to play at Steve's Guitars and they dropped by KDNK to say hello and play Winter to Pry and Up Into Roses from their recent CD Tempest and Rapture. They also played an older song, Shades of Tiffany
