Big Eyes at Knitting Factory in 2010 (more by Andrew St. Clair)
Big Eyes

West coast melodic punks Big Eyes and Audacity are teaming up for a split 7" and tour together this fall that hits Brooklyn on November 21 at Death by Audio with Marvin Berry and the New Sound and Space Trash and New Brunswick on November 23 at The Alamo with Wet Witch. The 7" comes out via Volar Records and can be pre-ordered now. All dates on the tour are listed below.

Big Eyes (who are fronted by Kate Eldridge, formerly of Cheeky, and relocated from Brooklyn to Seattle last year) released their debut full length, Hard Life, in 2011 via Don Giovanni, which is also home to Screaming Females, who they've played with in NYC before. They'll follow that with a new LP in 2013 via Grave Mistake Records, who also put out a 7" for the song "Back From The Moon" b/w "I Don't Care About Friday Night" earlier this year. You can stream the a-side of that 7" below. They're also repressing their 2010 demo on Evil Weevil Records and it will be available on the tour.

Audacity, who were last in NYC as King Tuff's backing band, put out their most recent album, Mellow Cruisers, earlier this year via Burger/Recess Records. You can stream that album in its entirety over at Noisey. Back in June, we premiered a video for album single, "Punk Confusion," which if you missed then, you can watch below.

A list of all dates, the tour flier, video and stream below.

Sleigh Bells

Sleigh Bells' Reign of Terror has begun, first with a show at Terminal 5 on February 17th with Black Bananas and Wet Witch (that was streamed online) and then with a Saturday Night Live appearance the next night. Pictures and videos from both NYC events are in this post.

Reign of Terror is the band's latest LP which hit store shelves this week (2/21). You can check out some live videos of some of the tracks below along with video from their Saturday Night Live appearance, which the Washington Post called "lousy". Judge their tunes for yourself at the New York Times.

Jack White plays SNL next weekend, and then the Shins the week after that.

Pictures from T5, live videos from the stream & SNL, and more tour dates are below.
