THE HOOT HOOTS

This is what rainbows sound like

Do you like being happy? Dancing around with a smile on your face in a crowd of other people smiling like idiots, too? Do you like rainbows? If you said yes to these questions, then you would be remiss to skip The Hoot Hoots set at Volume this year. The Seattle band — who often plays their happy go-lucky rock songs  in rainbow monk’s cloaks onstage — actually campaigned to come back Volume for a second year in a row. Which is, like, hilarious because they’re one of our favorite Northwest bands.
