It’s not easy to convince New Yorkers to make the trek on MetroNorth to Port Chester. But the recently reopened Capitol Theatre, restored to all of its former splendor, roused even the most skeptical of Brooklynites to make the journey to bask in Sleigh Bell’s rockness. The band was in prime form there last Friday, keeping the audience on their feet and toes (not throwing elbows).
Singer Alexis Krauss commanded the stage with pure force and adrenalin, jumping and dancing from one side to the other. It was, in a word, fun. Roller-coaster-riding fun. The kind of fun that engrains a smile on your face until it hurts. But it hurts so good.
Sleigh Bells are currently touring with AraabMuzik, wrapping up at First Avenue in Minneapolis on November 2.
