The Andy Warhol Museum, Pittsburgh, PA
The Warhol is thrilled to welcome back the highly original and innovative indie-noise/pop group, Deerhoof. The highly prolific ensemble has had quite a trajectory with their eleven self-produced albums since emerging in ’94 in San Francisco. Uniquely able to embrace and deconstruct traditional “pop” conventions, the band has been consistently hailed by a variety of press, such as the NY Times declaring them "one of the most original rock bands to have come along in the last decade", and FILTER stating "Deerhoof can walk into any musical territory and make it their own."Current members are Satomi Matsuzaki, John Dieterich, Ed Rodriguez and Greg Saunier. The high energy rhythms and melodic hooks of the Brooklyn-based ensemble, People Get Ready, open the show.
Satomi Matsuzaki plays bass and sings, Greg Saunier plays drums, John Dieterich and Ed Rodriguez play guitars. But what is Deerhoof really? Hell if we know. Pitchfork went so far as to label Deerhoof as "the best band in the world." The New York Times described them as "one of the most original rock bands to have come along in the last decade." From their humble beginnings as an obscure San Francisconoise act, they've become one of indie music's most influential bands with their ecstatic and unruly take on pop.
Deerhoof has released 11 self-produced albums and continues to tour the world frequently. The members of Deerhoof are Satomi Matsuzaki, John Dieterich, Ed Rodriguez and Greg Saunier.
