Yes, we have seen less than half of 1 percent of all Sleigh Bells shows, but we still feel confident in claiming that their 2010 Treats album release gig at Ridgewood Masonic Temple was among the duo's all-time best. And last year's Reign of Terror–supporting Terminal 5 affair? Nearly as good, with Alexis Krauss's strolling vocals and high-energy stage presence translating to the midtown warehouse just as seamlessly as Derek Miller's hardcore-style guitar licks and hip-hop-influenced programmed drums. Expect tonight's show to fall somewhere in the middle: Krauss and Miller's third album, Bitter Rivals, doesn't match their debut, but Detroit's Danny Brown is set to provide the best opening act the band has ever played with. At 8, also Saturday, Terminal 5, 610 West 56th Street, terminal5nyc.com, $25
