I can guarantee that I am one of only a handful of people to attend both Insane Clown Posse at the LC and Sleigh Bells at BoMA on Friday evening. The Juggalo-to-hipster culture shock just about gave me whiplash.

Fortunately, the late start time for Sleigh Bells — who were scheduled to go on at 12:30 a.m. — allowed me and my partner-in-concert-crime to catch both.

After navigating a massive line outside BoMA, I found myself in a sea of humanity that could not have been more different from where I came from — not many club kids and hipsters into ICP apparently.

Sleigh Bells have always reminded me of a bubblegum pop version of Atari Teenage Riot, which is pretty awesome in concept. The band actually arrived on stage closer to 1:30 a.m., guitarist Derek Miller in a spacesuit, singer Alexis Krauss clad in a schoolgirl jumper.

The set was short — the Bells’ debut album offers only about a half-hour of materiel — but intensely energetic, both onstage and on the floor. Krauss is so kinetic, it seems unlikely anyone could maintain that energy for much longer, anyway.

I’d also wager I was one of the few people both at Sleigh Bells and Slayer at the LC a few weeks ago, so I can confirm that Slayer was louder … though not by much. Hello again, tinnitus!
