PREVIEW THE EVENT: Sleigh Bells @ Spark Art Place (4/8/10)
LISTEN: “Crown on the Ground” by Sleigh Bells Live at SXSW Festival (Recorded by NPR)
Just in case you missed it last week, Sleigh Bells tore it up at South by Southwest Festival in Austin, TX, and the critics raved loud. NPR recorded the whole set, but I edited it down to their final song “Crown on the Ground,” which sounds so much better live than on their MySpace with the fuzzy bass. It’s fitting because Sleigh Bells’ long-awaited performance at Syracuse’s Spark Art Place is less than two weeks away! Until I heard NPR’s podcast, I had no idea what their live concert sounded like, and I’m now ecstatic more than ever. I can’t wait.
