Bloomington, Indiana’s lo-fi pop band HOOPS is back! With their smooth crystalline guitar riffs, dreamy lyrics and swooning melodic synths, this show is bound to make your heart swell. Like so many rising lo-fi bands today, HOOPS had a modest beginning. The brain child of front man Drew Auscherman, HOOPS started off as an ambient noise project deep in an Indiana basement, but later taking its full form with the help of Kevin Krauter (vox, bass), Keagan Beresford (vox, keys, guitar), and James Harris (drums). They made their introduction with the self-titled EP “Hoops” released in early 2016. With a successful debut on their shoulders and a growing underground fan base, it didn't take long for the guys to gain the attention of Mississippi based record label Fat Possum who picked them up and helped with the release of their first official LP, Routines. Since then HOOPS hasn't missed a beat, taking their routines to the road and now the Bottle.
