Polyvinyl - Deerhoof
Who: Tight, 15-year-old noise-pop freak trio
What: 2011's "Deerhoof vs. Evil" and a recent split 7" with Pedro the Lion's David Bazan
Why: Even as a serious Deerhoof fan, I'm starting to lose track of this amazing live band's releases, much like I do labelmates of Montreal (who are also on the Polyvinyl showcase). But the group remains beloved, playing other reputable showcases like those from Converse, Terrorbird and Filter during the Austin fest. It's hard to believe this is their first time to play the conference.
