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.

My grandmother has Alzheimers and sometimes comes to stay with us in Troy. Last week the absolutely highlight of her day was seeing the hundreds of crows that came streaming by the window at our apartment. I watched her go from completely unresponsive to engaged... stringing questions together and returning to her old joyful self for the half hour she watched those birds was enough to endear crows to me forever.

If you see someone running around throwing bird seed in Riverfront Park yelling "COME ON DOWN, BIRD FRIENDS!", it's me.
