The idiosyncratic San Franciscan noise-pop quartet Deerhoof have been expanding the musical palettes of their fans for nearly 20 years now. The always unpredictable band have continued to experiment over the years, transitioning from the raw, unbridled adventurousness of their early work to a bit more conventional, but still strange, sonic arrangements on the just-released Breakup Song. But no matter what distinctive sound the band is searching for, they always inject their ebullient songs with plenty of fun, a collective feeling that they easily transfer to every audience they play for. Drummer Greg Saunier describes the new album as "Cuban-flavored party-noise-energy music," and it's indeed a collection that keeps you on your toes. With Buke and Gase. 18+, $15, 7 p.m. 111 Fifth St. N., Minneapolis, 612.333.3422.
