Sleigh Bells, Nerve City, PO PO 

When: Tue., July 6, 9 p.m. 2010
Price: $10

Kids on the Internet have given Derek Miller, the guitar-and-beats half of New York duo Sleigh Bells, more than his share of grief for his heritage. Miller used to play in Poison the Well, the Florida post-hardcore band that, without him, still works to push hardcore forward by warping it with weirdness. But those same kids likely have a hard time shaking the hooks of "Infinity Guitars," "Crown on the Ground" and "Tell 'Em," the triptych of singles that anchors Sleigh Bells' tantalizing debut, Treats. Miller's fuck-all beat blasts and roaring guitar are as loud as hardcore, pushing everything into the red to suggest that the speakers are already busted. It's impossible to imagine these songs landing as well without their trunk-rattling bombast, and it's impossible to think of that obsession with loud as anything but, well, a post-hardcore tendency. With Nerve City and PO PO. —Grayson Currin
