The xx will be headlining the three upcoming Lollapalooza South America shows in Brazil, Argentina, and Chile. Nothing is set after these dates just yet, but I expect more show (and LP3) announcements coming sooner than later. The South American dates will be the trio’s first shows in three years (their last gig was a 2014 show at the NYC Guggenheim Museum).

UPDATE (10/10/16): new shows added

the xx fall 2016 dates

Stay tuned for more.

[recap] The xx – The Greek Theatre – 6/1/13


The xx – Live at The Greek Theatre in Berkeley – June 1st, 2013

This was their biggest US show to date, and they exceded even my highest expectations.  If you have the chance, you must see them live.  Absolutely incredible.

Show openers Exile, Choosey, and Hundred Waters were fantastic as well.

My good friend, and frequent collaborator, Brendan Fay (aka 35mmBeats) was able to snap some awesome photos from the show.  Check out a few of my favorite shots below.  I was also able to got some decent video from the show, I hope to post it sooner than later.  And last, but not least, stream the show’s setlist on Spotify.
