The Hoot Hoots to Make Boise Go Woot Woot 

Friday, April 26 at Red Room

The Hoot Hoots is a silly band name. Luckily, the Seattle power-pop foursome owns it and revels in silliness: The band often performs in costumes and once staged a robot battle in the audience.

And that slightly silly take endures in its music, which features peppy Casiotone and guitar garage-pop songs about aliens and video games.

But in no way are The Hoot Hoots a novelty or joke act. The band just treats creating music as something buoyant and gleeful.

The group's four releases all capture the urgent giddiness of a bedroom jam without getting mired in the sonic trappings of lo-fi, making its finely crafted and polished pop tunes seem as raw and lively as garage-rock--a winning combo perfect for the short-attention-span generation.
