    A bunch of prerecorded material being played over with an obnoxiously repetetive guitar line and lyrics from a screaming woman with no talent.

    seriously, that was so bad. Absolutely nothing to see. Watch somebody sing (poorly) to previously recorded material while the guitarist plays a few chords. What a fucking joke. They can't get somebody on drum machines and keyboards wtf!

    It was more about the tone. The tone was amazing. TONE.

    I left Avett Bros to check out Sleigh Bells, but when I got there they were done, at least fifteen minutes early. What was the deal with that?

    They have very few songs ready to play live I guess? I was also surprised by that.

    I LOVED THIS SET. even her screaming. Dunno wtf you guys were expecting. The guitarist does the all instrumental work by himself, so it's obvious they had to use a backing track. Alexis is fucking fire on that stage.

    My only disappointment was the lack of Ring Ring.

    They didn't do Ring Ring? I came a bit late and wondered if I missed it. Too bad on both accounts that song is awesome.

    yup.. no ring ring for some reason. being that they have such a small catalog, i thought they would've played everything.

    based on the other comments, guess this was a love/hate set.. no middle ground.

    Yeah, I agree with summerkid and cansei. It started off ok, and then got all Crystal Castles-y in the middle. Apparently Alexis didn't get the memo that the whole screaming thing really didn't work very well for Alice Glass last year.

    edit: You could say I was middle ground about the set.

    i love love love love love love loved it. i dragged my two friends to it and they were hesitant. they came out of the tent having loved it as much as me! we shook our booties and it was fucking LOUD, we were right up there and it was amazing. great set. one of my highlights- except i wish they had more material- and why not play Ring Ring? seriously, if you only have like 5 songs, atleast play all of them.
