Rock band, Deerhoof, delivers a distinctive style of music that shifts between noise, classic
and pop rock. Comprised of current members, Ed Rodriguez, John Dieterich, Greg Saunier and Satomi Matsuzaki, Deerhoof attributes
their sound to a number of primary musical inspirations. They include the Foo Fighters, TV on the Radio, Flaming Lips, Stereolab,
Grizzly Bear, of Montreal, Sufjan Stevens, St. Vincent, Sleigh Bells and Dirty Projectors. Their tunes are also frequently
done by other artists, including David Bazan, Los Campesinos!, Marco Benevento, Phil Lesh and more. The best way to experience
this authentic brand of music is to hoof it to one of their concerts hosted at top-notch venues like the Union Transfer in
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Troubadour in West Hollywood, California; and the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco,
California. Stay on top of Deerhoof's full concert schedule by signing up for StubHub's event updates today!
Deerhoof started out as a pet project for Rob Fisk (guitarist) and Greg Saunier (keyboardist/drummer) in
1994. They started out with 7" releases that included, Return of the Woods M'Lady and For Those of Us on Foot. Both served
as hints as what would later become part of their signature eccentric and experimental bend. Their lineup became a revolving
door throughout the 90s, which included Chris Cooper of Angst Hase Pfeffer Nase. In 1997, their first full-length effort arrived
titled, The Man, the King, the Girl. After Holdy Paws dropped in 1999, original member, Fisk, exited the group as well. He
was replaced by John Dieterich. Halfbird came next in 2001, and that same year, Deerhoof issued the 7" My Pal Foot Foot. The
highly praised Reveille arrived in 2002, followed by Apple O' in 2003 and Milk Man in 2004. They continued their prolific
schedule in 2005. Compounded with a heavy tour schedule, that year also yielded the Green Cosmos EP, the Runners Four album
and a Deerhoof tribute effort. In 2006, Deerhoof shared the bill with high-profile acts like the Fiery Furnaces, Mary Timony
and the Flaming Lips. Around the same time, Deerhoof worked closely with Ed Shearmur, a composer, on scoring the music for
a Justin Theroux film, Dedication. As the 2000s wore on, Deerhoof released Friend Opportunity in 2007 and Offend Maggie in
2008. Beginning in 2010, Deerhoof began revealing tunes from their next album through various media vehicles, generating some
buzz for fans. The anticipation was built up for their next release, Deerhoof vs. Evil. Their latest efforts include Breakup
Song (2012) and La Isla Bonita (2014).

Did you know that a ballet
was performed in North Haven, Maine, that was adapted from Deerhoof's Milk Man? Yep, it's true. The quirky album unravels
the slightly unnerving tale about a kidnapping milkman who conceals children in the clouds. But, drama teacher Courtney Naliboff,
ran with the idea and decided the album should be set to interpretative dance for a play for children.
