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.” From their humble beginnings as an obscure San Francisco noise act, they've become one of indie music's most influential bands with their ecstatic and unruly take on pop.
B|_ank (pronounced “blank”) is the solo project of electro-acoustic percussionist/experimental artist Will Hicks. He creates intense and abstract listening experiences by blending his furious drumming style with analog synthesizers, coupled with elements of electronic percussion and digital visuals. His performances can be very harsh and pulsating, as well as ambient and beautiful. In addition to his solo work, Hicks is a long-time collaborator with The Flaming Lips and has recently been seen performing with members of Deerhoof and R Stevie Moore.
If sometimes you have to grab life by the horns, NO PARKING (aka Parker Liam Harris) is grabbing the Bull City's like a roid-raged matador. Mixing trappy hip hop beats with bursts of noise and dreamy guitar, No Parking is all about constant evolution and experimentation. His new album TWO MOONS is a cinematic journey from the city streets of everyday life to the rocky and hostile surface of an alien planet. The record simultaneously sounds lofi and hifi, harsh and beautiful. There's even some angsty and extremely personal lyrics on two tracks. Don't miss out on seeing these songs performed live in a transcendant experience of punk super saiyan energy.
