Indie pop band Peach Pit to perform at IU Auditorium on March 6


Hosted by IU Union Board Concerts, Peach Pit, the indie pop band known for songs “Alrighty Aphrodite” and “Shampoo Bottles,” will perform at 8:30 p.m., March 6, in the IU Auditorium. 

Lead vocals and rhythm guitarist Neil Smith, lead guitarist Chris Vanderkooy, bassist Peter Wilton and drummer Mikey Pascuzzi from Vancouver, Canada, were best friends in high school before forming the quartet performing what they describe as “chewed bubblegum pop.” The group self-released their debut EP “Sweet FA,” in June 2016. Their debut album, “Being So Normal,” was released just over a year later in September 2017. 

Peach Pit describes their music as a space where listeners can experience deep emotions: reflecting on childhood, family, breakups and even addiction.
