This four-piece art-pop band started out as a small noise group in the 90′s in San Francisco. Since then, Deerhoof has transformed into one of the most influential indie bands of the last decade or so. In their typical fashion, the band intends to create entirely unique songs and albums, as to avoid becoming musically repetitive. So, in going to one of Deerhoof’s shows, you can never guess exactly what you’re going to get! By mixing a certain sense of surprise and excitement in their experimental art-pop songs, the band is always able to present a high-energy and upbeat live show.
