Pearl Harbor – SXSW 2010 Cheer Up Charlies

One of the most anticipated day parties was the GorillaVsBear/Mexican Summer showcase at Klub Krucial, featuring bands The Golden Filter, Best Coast and Pearl Harbor. The Golden Filter settled into the groove nicely with hot electro-synth sounds and bombastic drumming.

Pearl Harbor, newcomers to the city of Austin, played a gorgeous set of California-dreaming pop songs, and guitarist Skylar Kaplan, now 16 years old, played with the confidence and swagger of a live-music veteran. Equally amazing was sister Piper Kaplan’s stage presence — sweet and dreamy, she hypnotized the audience into submission with sonically warm vocals and warmer smiles.
