Sleigh Bells, Brooklyn’s favorite destructo-pop duo, are having a bit of a coronation month. There’s been critical raves for their new album Reign Of Terror, they’re on the cover of Spin, and tomorrow they’ll play Saturday Night Live, where they will work hard to redeem the concept of internet-bred artists in the public’s eye.
It’s all very well deserved. But one thing about coronation moments is that they make concert tickets hard to get, and Sleigh Bells’ show at Terminal 5 tonight is crazy sold out.
But fortunately for those who don’t want to go broke braving the black market, Bowery Presents will be streaming the show live at their YouTube page at 10:30. Tune in tonight (or tomorrow afternoon) to watch the pair pretty much destroy everything in their path.
