If you keep up with Deerhoof’s touring schedule, then you already know the prolific experimental rock quartet barely takes time off from the road. Maybe it’s because they’re always dropping new material, be it proper releases or free EPs, that they feel the need to play it all in a live setting as often as possible. Either way, this forthcoming jaunt is a means of further pushing this past January’s very good Deerhoof vs. Evil. The San Francisco residents begin their U.S. tour in their hometown before playing a slew of East Coast and Midwest shows.
