Deerhoof/Awkwafina/Celestial Shore 

When: Wed., April 23, 8:30 p.m. 2014

Breakup Song, released in 2012, is one of Deerhoof’s best albums, though it’s mostly impossible to really measure that kind of stuff. The band has been and always will remain an enigmatic force. They’re also constantly on the run: touring the world, cutting albums, posing for press photos where they’re all, like, squirming on the ground. Weirdness abounds with this crew. But that’s all for the best. Breakup Song captures the band’s present-day tone really well, dishing up madness like “Zero Seconds Pause,” “Bad Kids to the Front,” and plenty more. The cover of the album features a brightly lit semi-truck barreling down some generic city street, and that’s an apt illustration for the barrage of bass, guitars, drums and cute screaming via singer Satomi Matsuzaki.
