On the night of Monday, June 6th, 2016 Joyful Noise Recordings hosted a show featuring Hoops, NE-HI, and, the evening’s headliners: Twin Peaks. Set after set was a mix of fast guitars and ripped canvas sneakers that eventually boiled over into Twin Peaks’ members yelping and snarling the crowd into a frenzy. “We’ve been playing a lot of stadium shows lately,” bassist Jack Dolan said to the sold out crowd packed into the room, “so it feels good to be here.”
Chicago’s NE-HI spent their cinnamon whiskey-fueled set ripping through song after song. Hoops, the bill’s local support, started the evening off with a stacked set that immediately sent the crowd to the merch table upon its close. Many audience members were left disappointed, though, once they learned the band had quickly sold out of their vinyl stock.
