My night with The XX

18 June 2013

Sunday night we were lucky enough to see two great bands in one night Grizzly Bear and The XX
 I lost my mind a few months ago when I saw both were playing on the same stage in my neck of the woods. We saw The XX a few years ago at Austin City Limits Music Festival their first album had just been released and they played at one of the smaller stages during the day. They put on an amazing show then and we were anxious to see them again on their own tour. Sunday they came on promptly at 9:15pm after Grizzly Bear to a packed house (sold out show) of roaring fans anxious to hear songs like Crystalised , Try ,and VCR. You wouldn't think 3 musicians would put off such a powerful sound, well it was done . Watching Oliver Sim play the bass was electrifying , hearing Romy Croft soft angelic voice gave me goose bumps. These two don't say much but who needs to when they play their asses off. When they came back for their encore playing Intro from their first album the crowd went BANANAS ending the song with a minute of applause that seemed to overwhelm them. Ending the show with Angels repeating "being as in love with you as I am..." was a sure sign of their appreciation for their fans. Thank you Oliver, Romy, and Baria for an amazing performance.
