New York City band Skaters celebrated the release of their debut, Manhattan, with a hometown gig at the Bowery Ballroom on February 24th and offered Rolling Stone an exclusive peek behind the scenes. Michael Ian Cummings, Josh Hubbard, Noah Rubin and Dan Burke even agreed to write the following captions.

"How many Skaters does it take to put a decal on a kick drum? Apparently three. This is a new decal we made for the Bowery show. It's a picture from the insert of our record. Day of show is always filled with this sort of last-minute stuff. These are the little things that occupy a band's time."
