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.

I've seen a steady increase in cycling trips along Madison Ave. after the road diet. I've been one of those riders, too. It's made summertime trips from my house to the Point on Madison that much faster than walking, and there's really no need to drive that short distance - thereby saving a spot for another patron. I've not only enjoyed the F out of the trip, but burned a few calories, too, which considering my diet, is much needed. I'm very very pleased with this effort and thank CDTA, CDPHP and CDTC for their efforts in making this happen. I'm resolving to make MORE trips in 2019!
