When: Sat., June 17, 8:30 p.m. 2017
After more than two decades on the scene, Deerhoof are having a pretty great year. The fanciful, whacked-out noise-poppers were selected as 2017 artists-in-residence for independent record label Joyful Noise Recordings. They’ve since rolled out two new split LPs, each consisting of new material from band members’ various side projects — such as Satomi Matsuzaki’s Oneone and Greg Saunier’s Les Bonhommes. Before the end of the year, they’ll release two more split LPs and a Deerhoof LP. All proceeds from the new material go to Brand New Congress, a political action committee that seeks to elect progressives to various congressional seats. Deerhoof perform on Saturday, June 17, at the Higher Ground Showcase Lounge in South Burlington. Local cumbia band Mal Maiz open.
