When:Saturday, July 29 at 8:00 p.m.

Where:Union Pacific Stage

Through bad breakups, bouts of loneliness, existential crises, and even pandemics, true friends stick around. Instead of bending and breaking, their bonds crystallize in the roughest of rough patches. If friendship had a sound, it would be Peach Pit. The wistful grooves, glassy guitars, and sun-kissed melodies feel like they could only be made by musicians who have spent close to a lifetime (or at least half of their lives) together. The Vancouver quartet — Neil Smith [vocals, guitar], Chris Vanderkooy [guitar], Peter Wilton [bass], and Mikey Pascuzzi [drums]—trace their union back to high school. During 2016, they served up the self-titled single, “Peach Pit”, eclipsing north of 78 million total streams on Spotify. The group continued to gain traction with their 2017 full-length debut, Being So Normal. Among many highlights, “Tommy’s Party” and “Alrighty Aphrodite” both surpassed 79 million Spotify streams as the band graced the bills of festivals such as Shaky Knees Festival, Bonnaroo, M3F Festival, Sea Hear Now Festival, All Things Go Festival, Firefly Festival and many more. In 2020 Peach Pit revealed You and Your Friends, which DIY Mag hailed as “12 tracks of infectious indie-pop gems” while Atwood Magazine described the band as being “at the cutting edge of the alternative music scene.” Carrying this momentum into late 2021, they kicked off the next chapter of the band and their friendship with the single “Up Granville.”. To kick off 2022, the band released two singles entitled “Vickie” and “Look Out!” off of their highly anticipated new album From 2 to 3. The album was released on March 4th, 2022 with focus track “Give Up Baby Go.” The band are in the midst of a completely sold-out run of dates in the US and will be heading back into the studio in 2023.
