Live in Levi’s with Sleigh Bells & Haim


To say that we like it when girls play in bands might be the understatement of the century—but let’s go ahead and banish the phrase “girl band” from the collective lexicon. When female rockers are putting out some of the best (and loudest) music around, there’s really no point in drawing distinctions.

Case in point: Sleigh Bells (top left) and Haim (bottom right), who co-headlined an epic concert in Brooklyn Bridge Park the other night on behalf of Levi’s. Keep reading to hear handpicked tracks from two of our current favorite bands (female-fronted or otherwise).

Sleigh Bells consists of a former metal guitarist and a retired elementary school Spanish teacher.

The three sisters that make up Haim have been called a cross between Fleetwood Mac and En Vogue.

The concert in Brooklyn was to kick off Levi’s new “Live in Levi’s” project.
