The 2019 Ecstatic Music Festival continued on Saturday (2/16) at The Kauffman Center's Merkin Hall with a performance from veteran indie rock band Deerhoof and percussion trio Tigue. The night opened with a performance from Tigue, then a set from Deerhoof and then, as is the usual for Ecstatic Music Fest, they performed a set together, including a new collaborative piece commissioned for the fest. The evening finished with Deerhoof playing their 2007 album Friend Opportunity in full, with Tigue adding extra percussion. Check out pictures from the whole night in the gallery above, and the setlist is below.
