Jumping from venues such as Lincoln Hall and Schubas to the United Center is the sort of story any 14-year-old girl or small town boy dreaming of starting a band would covet. Yeah okay, so they’re playing with The Red Hot Chili Peppers, but they still have to be more than okay to get the okay from a band like that. Playing music that moms will never understand, the always-enigmatic experimental rockers of Deerhoof sometimes sound like they put all of their throwaway songs on the album on purpose instead of the beautiful ones they know people would like. 23 years later, the experiment still seems to be working.
