The Frontier Touring Company has announced the withdrawal of BAIO (Vampire Weekend) from Sleigh Bells’ January 2011 Sydney and Melbourne shows due to flight complications from the US.
One of the East Coast’s worst ever blizzards has put a halt to a number of flights from New York and any surrounding areas. These complications are totally unforeseen and both The Frontier Touring Company and BAIO have gone to every possible extent to make the tour go ahead as planned. Unfortunately all attempts were in vain.
Sleigh Bells will be joined by Melbourne five-piece Rat Vs Possum and infamous indie party-starters the Purple Sneakers DJs and this much anticipated show is sure to thrill.
Sleigh Bells will appear in Melbourne at the Prince Bandroom on Friday 7th January and in Sydney at The Forum on Saturday 8th January. Tickets available now!
Sydney’s Purple Sneakers DJs have revealed the final track listing for their highly anticipated new mix compilation; We Mix You Dance vol. 2 which is due out 7th January 2011.
Featuring an all-star line-up including Tame Impala, Ou Est Le Swimming Pool, Washington, Sia, Little Red, Two Door Cinema Club, Sleigh Bells, Muscles, Marina & The Diamonds, and many more, the mix captures the hottest indie-dance anthems of 2010 just in time for the sweltering summer parties of 2011.

*** with Sleigh Bells
Sleigh Bells have announced they will perform two headline shows January 2011 in Melbourne and Sydney.
Amidst numerous attempts to classify their sound, one thing is for sure – Sleigh Bells are unabashedly, irresistibly loud. Producer Derek Miller’s synth-heavy beats and pounding riffs are undeniable, complemented and perfectly off-set by Alexis Krauss’ melodic chants to form a sound that is genre-less; a melting pot of music that is distinctively Sleigh Bells.
Sleigh Bells headline show will also feature a DJ set from Vampire Weekend’s Chris Baio, performances from Sydney’s electronic newcomers Seekae and sets from indie party-starters the Purple Sneakers DJs.
Frontier Members pre-sale from 12 noon AEDT, Tue 12 October to 12 noon AEDT, Wed 13 October
General on sale from 9am local time, Friday 15 October
Friday 7 January Prince Bandroom, Melbourne 18+
Saturday 8 January The Forum, Sydney 18+
