With 12 self-produced albums under their belt, as well as numerous EPs, 7″ singles, split releases and compilation tracks, the innovative noise-pop group Deerhoof may just be one of the most productive groups working in alternative music today. Formed in San Francisco in 1994 and now based in Brooklyn, the distinctive ensemble features Satomi Matsuzaki, John Dieterich, Ed Rodriguez and Greg Saunier.

Known for crafting an eclectic and high-energy sound which simultaneously embraces and deconstructs traditional pop music conventions, Deerhoof released its latest album, Breakup Song, on Polyvinyl Records in 2012. A special release of the LP by Joyful Noise Recordings came in a unique flexi-book format that allows listeners to flip from song to song as if each track were a page in a storybook.

Deerhoof has toured the world extensively and its songs have been covered often by other artists such as TV on the Radio, The Flaming Lips, Grizzly Bear and St. Vincent. The quartet’s members also have various additional musical projects. Opening the all-ages show at The Rex are Awkwafina and Celestial Shore.

Jennifer has worked at the Mattress Factory, Brooklyn Museum of Art and Dahesh Museum of Art and is co-author of Pittsburgh Signs Project: 250 Signs of Western Pennsylvania. She also is co-coordinator of Handmade Arcade. Musically, she is in a band called The Garment District and is a founding member of Brooklyn's The Ladybug Transistor.
