So I did. Last Saturday night, I ventured out to Wooly's with my friend Erin to see Sleigh Bells. Oh, how I had anticipated this show – I was so excited when I found out they were making a stop here and could not wait to see them. After blaring their albums in the car until even my kid knew all of the words, this was such a fun band to see live.
They hit hard with those (infinity) guitars and heavy heavy bass. And Alexis Krauss is, well ... she's hot. She busted out the lyrics in that sweet voice of hers and even did some crowd surfing and I honestly loved every single minute of it. If you want to see that crowd surfing, check the Rill Rill video below. (Just beware of the tiny f-bomb.)
it's always a whole lot of fun to watch Josh Rand and Jim Root play. Corey Taylor is such a phenomenal front-man, too. I've got a lot of respect for those guys – you can tell they work hard.
Sometimes living in Des Moines has its perks and this was one of them, because this was kind of a hometown show, just for us. It was pretty fantastic.
Here's some video if you're interested. Gosh, it was fun.
