Tonight! Sleigh Bells, Cults, Sundelles, Massive Attack, Two Door Cinema Club, Dinosaur Feathers, And Phosphorescent
Tonight is a Nicolas-Cage-circa-National-Treasure wet dream: The Ridgewood Masonic Temple is housing Sleigh Bells, the M.I.A./Jonas Brother-endorsed duo consisting of metallic guitars fused with overdriven, butt-spanking hip-hop beats. Openers include ecstatic lo-fiers Sundelles and mysterious, sparkly pop romantics Cults (who have no MySpace, just a "Bandcamp"). Over at Terminal 5, Massive Attack bring on the doomsday dub (or "funeral P-Funk," if you will), while Two Door Cinema Club whip out their sensitive, Mac-powered electro jams at the Bell House. There, you can also glimpse the "choral splendor" and frenzied instrumental hodgepodge of Dinosaur Feathers. Lastly, the Yes in My Backyard-highlighted alt.country balladeers Phosphorescent perform at Union Pool, paying tribute to the Mermaid Parade and writing love letters to Willie Nelson.
