Modern Skirts, Colourslide 

When: Fri., Feb. 11, 11 p.m. 2011
Price: $8

As a flagship act of the current indie crowd of Athens, Ga., Modern Skirts has gradually broadened the span of its power pop to expansive, kaleidoscopic pop-rock eclecticism—think a quirkier, more adventurous Roman Candle. While hardly cohesive, this year's Gramahawk finds the quartet mixing Spector-esque production techniques and sunny, Beach Boys-inspired harmonies with off-kilter song structures, glossy synths and digitized beats. The hooks that were abundant on earlier efforts are occasionally obscured, but that's a minor quibble for a band this ambitious. Colourslide, a Gainesville, Fla., four-piece, delivers polished, radio-ready modern rock with soaring, arena-size choruses. —Spencer Griffith
