Sleigh Bells at Terminal 5 in Feb 2012 (more by Chris La Putt)
Sleigh Bells

Sleigh Bells and The Kills will separately headline two Converse City Carnage concerts/skateboard events happening at Hudson River Park. The Sleigh Bells show happens Saturday July 21 and is with Jel and Mr. Dream; The Kills show happens August 18 and is with Black Bananas and Viva Viva.

Both shows are free but you do need physical tickets which can be ordered via Ticketmaster on June 22 starting at noon. You can also pick up tickets at Converse's Soho and Garden State Plaza retail locations.

Both shows are part of two-day events. The skateboarding part will take place on Fridays (July 20, August 17) and features Converse Skateboarding Ambassadors Kenny Anderson, Nick Trapasso, along with the entire Converse Skateboarding team. You can read more about it here. Leading up to City Carnage, Hudson River Park's Pier 62 Skate Park will get a facelift courtesy the sneaker folks.

The City Carnage show is part of Sleigh Bells expanded summer tour and all current dates -- some of which are opening for Refused -- are listed below.

Q: What do you get when a good guitarist from a decent hardcore/screamo band starts a shitty indie pop disaster?

A: Sleigh Bells

How are they indie pop? They sound like Katy Perry with shitty nu-metal chugging over the backing tracks.

How do you know the majority of a music blog's commentors are white guys? They think any of these have a phat ass, ya'll funny.

Are these shows for free because the bands want to promote themselves?
