Haim / Sleigh Bells @ Brooklyn Bridge Park 8/5/2014

Sleigh Bells

With the Manhattan skyline as a backdrop, Haim and Sleigh Bells  played Brooklyn Bridge Park last night (8/5), a free show to promote the launch of Levi's new "Live in Levi's" campaign. (You had to wear an item of clothing from the manufacturer to get in.) Este Haim remarked that she used to eat playdough as a kid -- so much so that she had to get her stomach pumped -- and the smell from the park smelled exactly like playdough. She had a craving...but ate a candy bar instead. Sleigh Bells, meanwhile, said this would be their last show for a while. Both played for about an hour each. Pictures from the whole night, including ones of their setlists, are in this post.

These people are so cool, you can tell by their clothes and punk rock attitudes.

Great setting, lovely evening. But Sleigh Bells were so boring I left after their set.

Oh, and you'd think that a co. that can afford that park space and production—not to mention tens of millions to sponsor a football stadium—could also afford to buy a few drinks for the fans. #fail

Este's bass face though

Sets were more like 40-45 mins. apiece but for a free event nothing to complain about. Dug Sleigh Bells a lot more than I thought I would, Haim bored me a little although I have enjoyed them previously. Setting was gorgeous and there was lots of space to move about.

This might possibly be the worst concert in the history of the world.

Terribly situated event, bad job all around Levi's. Security Guards gave everybody who came early an extremely hard time. Having to watch a Levi's commercial before the set, ridiculous. Also, $7 cans of beers come on. Levi's marketing team, please give a call to Van's. Instilling a requirement to wear Levi's denim, ridiculous.

wud sleigh bells lady
not so much the haim beasts

Posted by Anonymous | August 6, 2014 12:43 PM

haim were terrible. the middle one needs to learn how to sing while playing an instrument. sleigh bells were surprisingly good.

where's some J5/Dilated Peoples coverage?

Schtick Bells are insufferable. Can't believe people fall for this cheese.

Weird pairing of acts.

Sleigh Bells = phony hipster bullshit masquerading as authentic gritty artistry (just like the crowd in these photographs).

Haim = corporate soft rock that is actually genuine and sincere.

Oh shit 12:50 preaching gospel

Somebody needs to tell the Haim bassist that she's not in a good enough band for all those faces.

Posted by Anonymous | August 6, 2014 12:56 PM

Fake-indie corporate-created bands playing a corporate sh!ll Levis event and its covered by a blog with a huge Dockers ad covering the rest of the page.

Its horseshit all around!

i can't believe that anyone willingly listens to sleigh bells

Not really rock & roll, just the illusion.

So much misogyny I'm surprised your mothers still speak to you lot

lol 1:06 ftw. nailed it

Posted by Anonymous | August 6, 2014 1:08 PM

bitter rivals was so bad. poor sleigh bells....fell off hard

Posted by Anonymous | August 6, 2014 1:17 PM

Ah, there's less misogyny on display here than usual (1:15 excepted).

More just general hate of two incredibly shitty bands, at one incredibly corporate event.

That bass player doesn't look she's rocking out to me. Looks more like painful gas.

1:02 works for free. Does it for the love. Also, lives at home. I think I hear your mom asking what you want for dinner.

This show (and the dockers banners on either side of this article) perfectly sum up American society in 2014.

He reminds us again, that music, or any other art, is only valid when used to sell product.

2:03/2:04 is so bitter since he got called out on BV as Foot Fetish and Buckeye Shrimper (that's nasty, dude) and Grammar Fag and an assortment of other aliases. A sad little man lost in his fantasy world like a painfully unfunny Rupert Pupkin.

2:11 is certainly one touchy little bitch!

Just listened to Haim for the first time ever. Wow, the state of the music industry has receive dire levels. Who listens to this over produced crap?

Posted by Anonymous | August 6, 2014 2:35 PM

I hear that Haim loves this shit.

Posted by Anonymous | August 6, 2014 2:43 PM

You've got to cut Buckeye some slack, 2:11.

Remember, this is a guy who thinks Nine Inch Nails and Soundgarden are "rockin'" in 2014, which easily puts him over 30.

Now imagine for a moment him driving around Podunk Iowa in his 1993 Geo Storm delivering Domino's pizzas with a pile of scratched metal and Clear Channel buttrock CDs covering the floorboard.


The sadness is profound.

uguh, sleigh bells chick fell off the horrible tattoo tree and hit every branch on the way down.

At least one of those Haim girls has to be getting a little coke blown up their asses by now. My bets on the bass player.

as I read through the list 7:06 wrote it felt like Kryptonite, sucking all the life force from me

^agreed, with the exception of Foo Fighters, who can't be stepped to in this, or any lifetime. Cred for aeons. But just because they didn't play 285 Kent, they'll never live in the hearts of the truest millennials.

Posted by Anonymous | August 7, 2014 2:08 PM

^ Foo Fighters are pure unadulterated Clear Channel Buttrock, bruh.

I really do wish I could be the fourth Haim sister. Instead, I guess I'll just settle for watching the "My Song 5" music video on Youtube on constant repeat....
