Paste Magazine raves of Deerhoof's new album, Vs Evil:

“Deerhoof never ceases to amaze. The band strikes a near-perfect balance between oddball accessibility and brazenly challenging their listeners to accept new and jarring sounds. The key word here is balance, between opposing forces: the past and the future, the human and the mechanical, the male and the female, the composed and the improvised, the crystalline and the obscured, the assonant and the dissonant.

So it's funny, and a bit ironic, that the band named its new album Deerhoof vs. Evil, as if its sound was merely a stand-in for the powers of “good,” when really it's a much more all-encompassing blend of Yang and Yin.

From the opening track, singer Satomi Matsuzaki's sweet, ethereal voice and the band's erratic machine-blast music repeatedly smash into each other with the cataclysmic energy of particles shot through the Large Hadron Collider. The album's synthetic flesh courses with the futuristic sounds of cutting-edge technology, while remaining fused to an organic skeleton of traditional global sounds, from flamenco to funk, Tropicalia to all-American riff rock.”

    panda panda panda panda pan- Gimme tickets to the late 21+ show!

  3. Sunyi Dixon February 23, 2011 at 4:45 pm #

    Because atomic bombs will go off if you don’t present me w/ these free Deerhoof tix!!!

  4. Noa February 23, 2011 at 4:46 pm #

    cause I still haven’t seen them

  5. Hannah February 23, 2011 at 4:51 pm #

    Yes! Deerhoof! ‘I don’t sleep much/but life is short isn’t it?’ I’d like the 21+ show tix.

  6. Tucker February 23, 2011 at 5:22 pm #

    The 21+ show would be ideal. Instead of sitting in my basement, getting drunk and listening to a Deerhoof record (probably Friend Opportunity or Holdypaws), I could leave the house, get drunk, and listen to whatever they decide to play! Then my girlfriend won’t think I’m such a waste of life…

  7. Jen February 24, 2011 at 1:08 am #

    Because I’m going to take as many pictures and videos as I can and put ’em out on the internets. I’ll take tix to the early show.

  8. tony moreno February 24, 2011 at 6:18 am #

    because the 3 and 4 year olders need to see some good live music.

  9. alan silver February 24, 2011 at 10:41 am #

    One project I’ve worked on for years is coming to an inglorious and sad end, day by day; another is just beginning to take off in great directions. Right in between, there’s me – and I’ve love to mark this moment with a live Deerhoof show as its soundtrack. The early show would be a treat for me.

  10. Mike Wood February 24, 2011 at 2:11 pm #

    because I love the new album, tix for 21+ late show please

  11. Thea February 24, 2011 at 4:12 pm #

    because the only thing better than a snowday is deerhoof

  12. Nicole February 24, 2011 at 4:16 pm #

    the last time I saw Deerhoof was an all ages show and I would love to not repeat that experience. Besides having to stand behind a freaking fence to drink my whiskey, the band had to quit just as they got rolling so the little ones could go home to bed. 21+ please!

  13. shannon omelia February 24, 2011 at 4:18 pm #

    i wanna hear what deerhoof sounds like live. pretty please with a gold-ladened deerhoof on top.

  14. Justin February 24, 2011 at 4:38 pm #

    Have you heeaaaarrrddd Microcastle!? So classic. 21+ please :)

  15. Emily Neve February 24, 2011 at 4:53 pm #

    21+ Pretty Plaleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeze! Fan F-ing tastic.

  16. Andy February 24, 2011 at 5:11 pm #

    I’d like to get tickets to the later show. I am a broke reclusive musician that hasn’t been to a live show in months (last show was Pinback @ Doug Fir).

  17. ca~lest February 24, 2011 at 5:16 pm #

    Because I am a broke college student that would like to dance off that anxiety from studying, and bring my boyfriend who love, love, loves Deerhoof, who only has 4 days off a month, and who finally has Saturday off! What a great way to celebrate a day off!

  18. alissa February 24, 2011 at 5:26 pm #

    the deerhoof members are super nice people (deerhoof vs. evil, right?), and I like to support that. I am old enough to drink, but don’t often, and am down for the early or late show. I’m prolly not gonna study for my final on a saturday night anyway.

  19. lilmslibrary February 24, 2011 at 5:33 pm #

    Experiencing all life has to offer generates creativity. Mama’s hunger for music to expose my preteen drummer girl to would be satiated for the weekend with a pair of Deerhoof tickets. The early show would make quite fine Saturday evening entertainment for this mother/daughter duo.

  20. ca~lest February 24, 2011 at 5:33 pm #

    …yeah If my comment is not too late I would like to add on by stating how perfect tickets to the 6pm or 9pm show would be! I would love to treat out my boyfriend who has not been able to experience Portland since he moved here last May from the South. He needs to be conditioned and initiated into what Portland has to offer! So far, all Portland has offered him is long hours working and sleep deprivation. He has not experienced the “retired twenty year old 90s culture” that is so alive in Portland…or asleep until the night begins!

  21. ca~lest February 24, 2011 at 5:36 pm #

    …and I have nothing better to do right now than to distract myself from my homework and write another comment saying how rad it would be to see the 6pm show! Dancing at 6pm is a great way to start out the Saturday!

  22. Mackenzi February 24, 2011 at 5:52 pm #

    all ages. because I really want to

  23. tina February 24, 2011 at 5:55 pm #

    all ages. My daughter and I love them.

  24. Eric February 24, 2011 at 6:18 pm #

    Seething… My spell check tells me this is the closest word to replace… Deerhoof. Can I go to the big boy late night Seething show?

  25. free February 24, 2011 at 6:41 pm #

    may deerhoof warm me up from this beautiful snow-late show please.

  26. timon February 24, 2011 at 7:04 pm #

    I missed my chance to see deerhoof in my hometown three years ago. Don’t let it happen again!!

  27. Stephen February 24, 2011 at 7:38 pm #

    Please because I asked so nice. All ages show please.

  28. Ally February 24, 2011 at 8:26 pm #

    Would love the opportunity to hear some new music and it would be most appreciated if I were to win.

  29. JD February 24, 2011 at 8:58 pm #

    I L-O-V-E Deerhoof!

  30. Susan Damato February 25, 2011 at 6:21 am #

    please enter me for the early show, cuz i’m old but still want to party!

  31. Jim W February 25, 2011 at 9:01 am #

    Winning would mean that I could go see good music after a tough work week!

  32. SR February 25, 2011 at 9:14 am #

    I’d love to see Deerhoof live! Their drummer is the inspiration for my invention: the spastastic random percussion generator.

    • SR February 25, 2011 at 9:15 am #

      Tickets for the late show – 21+ please

  33. Shely February 25, 2011 at 9:28 am #

    Deerhoof is one of the few bands that could get me to face my fear of children. Tix to the early show…because I’m hardcore.

  34. jaimie February 25, 2011 at 1:48 pm #

    Deerhoof rocks so hard!!! my sister is visiting from the east coast, plz send us to the show!!!!

  35. Ben February 25, 2011 at 6:37 pm #

    Late show.

  36. Kevin February 25, 2011 at 7:45 pm #

    I would love to see Deerhoof live! I’ve heard great things about their live shows before, and would love the chance to see them! 21+ show would be ideal :)

  37. Casey McGuire February 26, 2011 at 12:40 am #

    …Because I turned 24 at holocene and need to see a live band there too! I’m new to Portland from SC and would LOVE this!
