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.

This is potentially good news for St. Josephs. I walk around it 2 or 3 times a week and the last few years the deterioration has seemed to accelerate. She will be looking right at it everyday from her front windows.
