Deerhoof is coming W Magazine describes them as a "blend of candy-coated power pop and abrasive noise rock that's somehow dazzling and fun." Their latest album is about a misunderstood milkman who preys on little children. Deerhoof is coming to the Ottobar Saturday. Critics are calling their new record Milk Man their most accessible to date; fear not, nobody is calling it mainstream. They have been touring and sharing a few dates with Wilco. Philly band Need New Body and Snacks are also billed.

Chimpanzees are supposed to be the "good" apes, cute and funny, the hairy little people depicted in thousands of films and TV shows. But recent news out of western Africa shows they can be brutally fierce. A chimp attacked and killed a Sierra Leone man who was driving Americans to a wildlife refuge last month. Another man lost part of his hand in the attack. Some news reports said a group of up to 20 chimps that had broken out of their enclosures gang-attacked the men, while other stories have pinned responsibility on one animal, possibly a chimp named Bruno, the undisputed alpha male of the Tacugama Chimpanzee Sanctuary.

Clemson University has moved into the top 20 by opening the season with two come-from-behind victories, and youth has helped the Tigers get there. Ten freshmen, be they first- or second-year players, have graced the No. 20 Tigers' two-deep depth chart. Among that group, James Davis, a true freshman from Atlanta, has made the most noise early on. Davis, 6 feet, 205 pounds, announced his presence with 101 yards rushing in the season-opening, 25-24 victory over Texas A&M. He kept it up Saturday, when he started against Maryland, established Clemson's ground game, and pounded out 82 yards on 20 carries in the Tigers' 28-24 victory.
