Settlers // Team Spirit // Skaters // 3.21.14

This Friday night Mississippi Studios will play host to a trio of awesome bands from both sides of the country. Opening the night is Portland’s own Settlers whose knack for driving, atmospheric indie rock can be heard on the track “Proskater” which you can download here for free or $100... name your price. Next up will be the anthemic and energetic Team Spirit of Brooklyn, who blend a power-pop attitude with surf rock vibes to create an irresistibly rocking sound. Also from New York and closing out the night is Skaters, who are able to seamlessly combine a classic indie rock sound with a nihilistic energy typically reserved for garage rock groups. Their performance, along with the entire venue, is bound to be ecstatic as they play songs off of their debut album, Manhattan. Show starts at 9pm, do yourself a favor this weekend and get to this show.

Seen Live: Team Spirit rock the Studio at Webster

Former keyboardist for Passion Pit, Ayad Al Adhamy, certainly knows how to keep a room entertained. His Brooklyn/Boston based band Team Spirit played The Studio at Webster Hall on Tuesday, August 30th. Openers, Static Jacks and Beast Make Bomb (who celebrated their farewell show) set the right atmosphere, starting off the night with a lot of raw energy and catchy hooks. But Adhamy’s scratchy whine and his band's punchy material succeeded in the most challenging of tasks: getting a NYC crowd to bounce to the tunes. With fast-paced punk/pop melodies, the band was completely in sync with tight instrumentals and vocals. The spirited front man jumped off the stage numerous times, dancing with girls in the audience, jamming with fellow guitarist, Cosmo Kilburn Di Giulio, and at one point, encouraging the audience to squat on the ground before he jumped back on stage into an aggressive fit of screams and powerful riffs. Team Spirit will be oopening for Miniature Tigers tonight at the TT the Bear's in Cambridge, MA. - Chelsea Eriksen
