VERY EXCITED to see Deerhoof and also the reactions to Deerhoof made by people unfamiliar with the band. ;)

Deerhoof!?!

Deerhoof and Saintseneca are awesome bands. Too bad I'll be out of town for Saintseneca.

What in the world?! Deerhoof?! College me would be really pumped.

Just one more comment for "Deerhoof, what?" I share Paul's sentiments exactly.

Recent Comments

I've found that anecdotes from neighbors, friends, or internet "strangers" can only take you so far. If you haven't already, I strongly recommend you get out there and visit these schools during the school year, during the school day to get a feel for things. In the last few months, my wife and I have made a series of visits to our local elementary, middle + high-school. During those visits, we had the chance to talk to multiple teachers and see the kids "in action". It was very VERY telling in a lot of ways - both good and bad.
