"An imposingly rich, labyrinthine hallucination."--TINY MIX TAPES on Deerhoof San Francisco–based trio Deerhoof artfully and avidly mashes up candy-coated melodies with bursts of delicious chaos. With the band's most recent release, The Runners Four (on Kill Rock Stars), the sonic experimentalists even flirt with shards of straight-up rock...before subverting the rhythms with wonderfully skewed sleight-of-hand. The band is on to something, and even the New York Times has weighed in, calling Deerhoof "one of the most original rock bands to have come along in the last decade," and dubbing its breakthrough record "miraculous...a defining statement." Led by songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Andy Broder, fearless avant-rock band Fog from Minneapolis opens the show. Check out the band's new release Loss Leader on Lex Records.
