Yeasayer/Sleigh Bells at the Fillmore
Last night at the historic Fillmore I saw Sleigh Bells and Yeasayer in one night! had a great time— show was amazing. Probably even more amazing because of my second hand high from everyone in the crowd smoking. Little Hiroshimas of weed sprouted out from the crowd into the heavens.
Sleigh Bells: Sounded great, but the performance was kinda boring. The only recordings to their name are a demo— they’re a young band. I thought they should have hired a tour band to go along with them because just the two of them (along with 70% of the rest of the music that was prerecorded) on stage seemed like it was karaoke. But don’t worry the chick was running around the stage trying to make up for it. Maybe “flailing” is a better term to use? Oh yeah, she had a propensity to scream into the mic without warning. Thanks for that. Crown on the Ground is the stand out track, live or recorded.
Yeasayer: Put on a fantastic show. Sounded great and was fun to watch. At first they seemed pretentious, but as they night went on they got more and more fun. Tunes sounded so good, it made the crowd dance along with the melody.
