The Hoot Hoots: Just Wanna Have Fun

The Hoot Hoots released zippy, addictive album called COLORPUNCH last November, which is weird considering it’s a perfect summer album. Based on the crunch-pop maximalism that spans the record, not to mention the infectious and bottomless energy exhibited throughout, The Hoot Hoots don’t like to do things normally.

As a Seattle-based four-piece, the band has developed a reputation for sets as bold as their magnificent rainbow garb. However, for having such an illustrious image, The Hoot Hoots’ musical approach is straightforward and pop-friendly, like a garage rock group that also LARPs on the weekends.

Their set for Timber! takes place on the mainstage at 4:40 on Friday and will likely be a much-needed rejuvenation between post-lunch lounging and ramping up for the evening. There’s just something so beautiful about a talented group of musicians who just deeply want to have fun, and The Hoot Hoots have it in spades.
