Sleigh Bells, Doldrums 

When: Wed., Nov. 6, 9 p.m. 2013
Price: $18-20
Novel in much the same way as the sugar-buzzed and strangely forgotten The Go! Team, Sleigh Bells' addled assault of dance-pop and hair metal guitar may not have ever been much more than empty calories. Nevertheless, the band's 2010 debut, Treats, was welcomed like a trick-or-treat bounty. But by album No. 3, October's Bitter Rivals, the stomachache set in. While new ingredients show the band looking to evolve, Sleigh Bells' appeal always resided in a simple novelty—one that has mostly worn off. —Bryan C. Reed
