Skaters/Team Spirit/The Bakers

You know a band is up-and-coming when it performs multiple shows at South by Southwest, the annual record label showcase that takes place in Austin every spring. Skaters didn’t play just once. The guys played seven shows over the course of the weekend. Clearly influenced by the melodic punk of the ’80s (think Mission of Burma and the Pixies), these guys aren’t afraid to temper their snarling guitars with soft vocals and tight melodies. On their new album, Manhattan, they alternate between sounding like the Strokes (“Deadbolt”) and Blondie (“I Wanna Dance [But I Don’t Know How]”). Think of tonight’s show as a good way to catch the band before it breaks big.
