School of Seven Bells' Alejandra Deheza

We are grateful for the wonderful shoutout from our Brooklyn neighbor Alejandra Deheza of School of Seven Bells on’s Style File. Read on…

. School of Seven Bells‘ Alejandra Deheza, a fellow first-timer at the festival, is bringing her dreamy Brooklyn pop sounds—and plenty of dark clothes. “It’s pretty much all black,” Deheza says of her onstage style. “When I was a kid, I was really into goth, so it’s probably my inner goth coming out.”

School of Seven Bells first won acclaim for their 2008 debut, Alpinisms. Now holed up in a Williamsburg recording studio working on their upcoming, “more dance-y” third album, Deheza and guitarist Benjamin Curtis are taking some time off to tour (and, if they’re lucky, see a fellow festival act or two). “I have never been to Bonnaroo, not as a fan or performer,” Deheza tells “I really want to see Lil Wayne—I have never seen a spectacle like that before.” Here’s what she’s planning to bring with her to the spectacle:

A black poncho from NYC’s Oak. “One thing I always wear is this black hoodie poncho from Oak. It has a really long tube for a hood and you look really witchy wearing it.”

Quay Eyeware Australia sunglasses [not available anymore]. “We are playing at night, so the sun won’t be so bad. But if I need them, I will wear these Quay gold-frame sunglasses—they’re my favorite. I picked these up at Oak, too. Do you see a theme here? It’s this perfect one-stop place.”
