The latest batch of young fussed over Brits to crash the pond with that hot SXSW buzz and bleed over into Coachella and continue to impress would be Palma Violets. Four UK lads doing that edgy kind of Britpop (the kind that means they obviously listened to lots of power pop and punk growing up) have developed a reputation for a blistering live act, and between Coachella weekends, they brought that act to Silver Lake’s The Echo. Working material from their debut, 180, they filled the tiny stage with enough rowdiness to make the whole room sweat, tossing off rocking little gems like “Tom the Drum” and “Step Up for Cool Cats.” They are sassy, smart, spunky, and most of all… really really fun.
