If you like them on record, you will love them live. Buzzsaw guitars, crazy-intense drum machine beats along with Alexis Krauss' exquisite singing and insane energy come across so well from the stage. The crowd goes nuts and the energy exchange between the band and audience builds and builds.
This show started off with "Blue Trash Mattress Fire" from their new EP Kid Kruschev. The set then jumped back to Treats, on to 2016's Jessica Rabbit, 2013's Bitter Rivals, and 2012's Reign of Terror. I would have loved to hear "Lighting Turns Sawdust Gold" but their set was pretty much perfect as-is. Alexis jumped into the crowd during "Crown On The Ground", which capped off their main set, and again during the final tune of the encore, "Rill Rill".
Another awesome show by the brilliant Sleigh Bells that only serves to make me want to see them again as soon as possible.
Check out my favourite Sleigh Bells tunes, following the order of their powerful setlist.
