Deerhoof

Singer/bassist Satomi Matsuzaki wore a furry tiger mask, took it off, did robotic calisthenics, walked around in circles, and sometimes just stood still and played straight.

The band's set was a stop-start joy. Songs were composed-sounding fragments of different ideas stitched together -- chill-out radio jam, head-bobbing staccatto rock, noisy (but not too loud) time signature experiment: all were conveyed with an exuberant sense of discovery. Totally engaging. [Seattle Times on Deerhoof at Sasquatch 2009]

Deerhoof played WA's Sasquatch Fest on Memorial Day.

The band is now touring Europe through July, but returns for a pair of West Coast dates at the end of that month. Then their scheduled appearance at All Tomorrows Parties NY on September 13th will be accompanied by a string of East Coast shows. One of those will be September 15th at NYC's (Le) Poisson Rouge. No ticket info yet.

Check out a video, and more pictures from their set at Sasquatch, and all tour dates below....
