‘Smallpools’ To Play At Alumni Hall On April 8

Penn State’s Student Programming Association (SPA) announced that the indie-pop band Smallpools will come to Alumni Hall in the HUB for a free show on April 8. The show starts at 10 p.m. and requires no ticket, just a valid Penn State student ID.

Smallpools first gained recognition with the release of the band’s self-titled EP in 2013, off which came its most popular song “Dreaming,” which has racked up over 27 million listens on Spotify, and has been turned into a popular remix by the Chainsmokers. The band releases its first, and so far only, full-length album in 2015 called “Lovetap!” and has subsequently toured all around the country.

While not currently on tour, the band has made occasional stops to college campuses across the country while working on its second album.
