Described by Pitchfork as “the best band in the world,” Deerhoof is coming to the VAC to prove to Boise fans they deserve the title. Opening are Buke and Gase, Raleigh Moncrief, and Luke Wyland of AU.

Doors @ 7pm, Show @ 8pm | 21+ | Tickets are $12 online or at the Record Exchange


Deerhoof (Polyvinyl)

Satomi Matsuzaki plays bass and sings, Greg Saunier plays drums, John Dieterich and Ed Rodriguez play guitars. But what is Deerhoof really? Hell if we know. Pitchfork went so far as to label Deerhoof as “the best band in the world.” The New York Times described them as “one of the most original rock bands to have come along in the last decade.” From their humble beginnings as an obscure San Francisco noise act, they’ve become one of indie music’s most influential bands with their ecstatic and unruly take on pop.

Buke & Gase (BRASSLAND)

A Brooklyn band with nothing better to do than sit around inventing new instruments—it certainly smacks of the urban-renewal woodsman ideology we’re told exists these days. But for Aron Sanchez and Arone Dyer (both pronounced “Aaron”), who comprise Buke & Gass, they just do it this way because it’s easier. They make almost everything they play, right down to their guitar amps.

Raleigh Moncrief

Producer, engineer, and musician Raleigh Moncrief hails from Sacramento.

Luke Wyland

The frontman of AU will be bringing some unique solo work to the VAC.
