Deerhoof news

Earlier today, I noticed on Pitchfork that bassist/guitarist Chris Cohen quit Deerhoof to focus more on his band The Curtains. That stinks because last time I saw Deerhoof it was a hella kick-ass show. Still, the band carries on and will proceed with their already planned tour:

may 28 - Bend, OR - Les Schwab Ampitheater - with The Flaming Lips and Stephen Malkmus.
jun 3 - Barcelona, Spain - Primavera Festival.
jun 5 - Porto, Portugal - Porto Rio.
jun 6 - Lisbon, Portugal - Lux.
jun 23 - Berkeley, CA - Greek Theater - with Radiohead.
jun 24 - Berkeley, CA - Greek Theater - with Radiohead.
jun 26 - San Diego, CA - with Radiohead.
jun 27 - San Diego, CA - with Radiohead.
jun 29 - Los Angeles, CA - Greek Theater - with Radiohead.
jun 30 - Los Angeles, CA - Greek Theater - with Radiohead.
aug 10 - Carrboro, NC - Cat's Cradle.
aug 11 - Athens, GA - 40 Watt Club.
aug 13 - Brooklyn, NY - McCarren Park Pool
aug 31 - Arcata, CA - Kate Buchanan Hall
sep 2 - Seattle, WA - Bumbershoot Festival.
oct 26 - Columbus, OH - Wexner Center
oct 27 - Pittsburgh, PA - Andy Warhol Museum
Also, the most interesting bit of Deerhoof news (to me) is that they posted a new EP on their website! It has four covers (the Beatles, My Bloody Valentine, Canned Heat, and Herman's Hermits) and five live cuts.
