Even though Hanson broke out at South by Southwest, Magic Kids aims for some of that Okie mojo with the FX3 demographic. The Memphis-based, mixed-gender sextet stuffs 11 originals into its debut, a backpack of a recording fitted neatly together, stacked like schoolbooks with such forever-young titles as "Skateland," "Cry With Me Baby," "Little Red Radio," and "Candy." As tight and well-rehearsed as any camp band, the Kids' real magic lies in their unsullied embrace of 1960s pop and garage rock with a modern teen sensibility. "Hey Boy" is splashed with such pronounced Beach Boys-style harmonies, it will carry the endless summer vibe through the winter. (Sunday, 12:50pm, Orange stage)
