DEERHOOF (USA)

 


 

February 28
Rosemount Hotel
with Runner and Perth

 

 

 


 


 

Described by Pitchfork as “the best band in the world”, Deerhoof return to Australia to showcase their new album, Breakup Song.

From their humble beginnings as an obscure San Francisco noise act, Deerhoof have become one of indie music's most influential bands with their ecstatic and unruly take on pop. One of the most unlikely success stories in contemporary music, Deerhoof have made some of the most difficult and unclassifiable noise of the mid-nineties, before unexpectedly rising to international prominence as one of indie rock's most renowned and influential groups. Deerhoof have influenced the sound of many of their contemporaries, including The Flaming Lips, Xiu Xiu, Dirty Projectors, Ponytail, Of Montreal and St. Vincent.
