In Pictures: Sleigh Bells in San Francisco
New York noise-pop act Sleigh Bells -- singer Alexis Krauss and guitarist Derek Miller -- are on the road right now in support of the band's second studio set, "Reign of Terror," which hit stores in February.
In an interview with coupdemainmagazine.com just prior to the albums' release, Krauss named the songs she was most excited to play in front of an audience: "The first song on the record 'True Shred Guitar,' is a really exciting song to play live it's kind of just over the top and ridiculous and it's a perfect way to open our set, so I'm hoping kids will feel the same about it." This weekend fans in the Pacific Northwest can catch the tour: Saturday (4/7) at the Roseland Theatre in Portland and Sunday (4/8) at Seattle's Showbox SoDo. The tour also includes a stop at Chicago's Pitchfork Festival in May.
SoundSpike photographer Tim Mosenfelder attended Sleigh Bells' show last night (4/5) at The Warfield Theatre in San Francisco, and here are some of his best shots. --View Larger Photos
