Deerhoof

After a run of dates (including a Boston show) with Xiu Xiu (who play Maxwell's tonight), Deerhoof headlined the Le Poisson Rouge stage in NYC on Wednesday night with their tour-mate Father Murphy, and an opening set by wacky NYC jazz and noise group Talibam!. More pictures from that show, below...

This is gonna sound silly but I was enjoying Father Murphy way more before the singer turned around and I saw he had a mustache.

How does the band sound now with two 12 strings in the mix?

Great show! Great pics - they really captured the mood of the show!

Need Deerhoof setlist! Anyone got it?

I agree with 12:40

thanks!

they didn't have setlists out but it was heavy on Offend Maggie, a few off of Milk Man, "Perfect Me" off of Friend Opportunity, a cover of "Pinhead" by the Ramones and they all switched instruments to play what I believe was a Byrds cover. I'm a huge Deerhoof fan but I'm horrible with any band's song titles, this is why i don't write reviews :)

the two 12 strings sound ridiculously full and heavy. chunky and delicious.

...they covered the troggs' "with a girl like you"...

thanks for posting these (always excellent) pictures!

what a show! where are the jerks from the other day commenting about how lame satomi is...they're insane...she's got a voice like a flute, always hitting the perfect note at the perfect pitch at the perfect dynamic volume...she smiles, she entertains, and on a few songs she jumps around alot and waves her arms, what more do you want from a participating member in one of the most genius rock groups of the past coupla decades?

also: father murphy turned in a great set, very ominous, heavy at times, scary, compelling

and talibam was hilarious, if at times collapsing into an abyss of disaster, pretty reflective of the spirit of the age in which they dwell

ahhh the troggs... yeah not the byrds haha

fantastic show, topping their LPR gig in 9/09. setlist was a nice mix of their discography. new song sounded tight. awesome energy from the band with greg as furious on the drums as ever. hope they come back to NY again soon.

they played their Gabba Gabba song and it was great.

hummus hummus.

> always hitting the perfect note at the perfect pitch at the perfect dynamic volume

Calm down there Sparky. Perfect pitch? You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means. Perhaps you like her "singing", but perfect pitch it is not.

which word? "perfect" or "pitch"

however, i disagree... she is always on pitch

nice princess bride reference by the way

also, Talibam! was Terrible!
The pictures make it look like they were fun, but they were awful. Being forced to listen to them was insulting at best.

what song did greg sing and play guitar on? did htey do 'odyssey'? ive always wanted to see them play that.

Posted by brogue | October 15, 2010 4:31 PM

i wish they had played odyssey, but it was the aforementioned troggs song, "with a girl like you"

Perfect game

yeah, Talibam played for entirely too long. a full on hour of chaotic garbage (save for the drummer, he's got skills) but even the underwear adorned flower children weren't enough to save this flaming plane from crashing into the mountain. in my opinion an opener should never have a set as long as the headliner unless it's posted as a double bill. Deerhoof played for exactly 1 hr. 6 min. - Talibam played for 58 minutes. It bordered on the brink of sheer torture.
