The xx filled the Tabernacle with their indie pop sound for a sold out crowd of excited fans on February 2nd. I wasn’t sure what type of crowd would be at this show, but upon arrival I realized there was a very wide range of fans from younger to older. The electronic sound started with the opening act Austra. Once The xx took the stage, the crowd went wild as Romy Madley Croft(vocals and guitar) began singing Angles with the crowd.
Fans felt the energy throughout the show and were up dancing to the sounds of The xx. Oliver Sim (vocals and bass) and Romy kept the crowd alive while Jamie Smith (electronics) kept the energy going in the room. Oliver and Romy both stopping to thank the crowd throughout the show, you could tell they really appreciated their fans.
The London based band has been creating music since 2005 and currently has two albums out, xx(2009) and Coexist(2012). The xx is not slowing down they have dates all over the United States, Canada, Australia and more through August.
