Yet again, KEXP is teaming up with Red Bull Sound Select to bring you a fantastic night of live music tonight, Wednesday, May 6th, at The Crocodile. The series holds a concert in eleven cities across the country (New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Nashville, Austin, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Dallas, Minneapolis, Seattle and Portland) on a monthly basis.
This month, we bring you avant-garde pop group Deerhoof, who just released their thirteenth album last year, La Isla Bonita. Even when they try to be "normal," the long-running art-rock group make it weird: founding member Greg Saunier said the album started out as a tribute to Madonna and Janet Jackson. All we can say is, thank goodness it took a different turn, and we can't wait to see what they bring to The Crocodile tonight.Opening the show will be two rising stars of the Northwest music scene. It'll be the final hometown show from Killer Ghost for a while, as the band are about to embark on tour. And Portland's Summer Cannibals kick it all off with their fun punk-pop songs. Their sophomore release, Show Us Your Mind, just came out earlier this Spring via their own New Moss Records.
Tickets are a mere $3, but you need to hurry and RSVP here. These events are first-come, first-served, so arrive early. 21+ show.
