Deerhoof, Ben Butler & Mousepad, Le Weekend 

When: Sun., Feb. 6, 9:30 p.m. 2011
Price: $15

One of music's most joyously unpredictable bands, Deerhoof has built a decade-long career on high ambitions and risks that yield admittedly mixed returns. When Deerhoof misses, they obfuscate their chief charms—razor-sharp riffs, music-box melodies, surprising rhythmic tricks—in tangents and textures. But when Deerhoof lands, they make the sort of pop-rock that you'd never imagine possible. "I Did Crimes for You," which sports the most indefatigable melody from the new Deerhoof vs. Evil, gathers hand claps, chimes and acoustic guitar alongside distorted bass throb, chiseled and chiming electric guitars and chilly synthesizer sweeps. As continually challenging as indie rock gets right now, they're a must-see. —Grayson Currin
