Live in London – The XX (but be quick, tickets limited!)

Writing this in a total hurry as I’m so mean’t to be packing for my festival weekend, but it’s urgent so…

The XX have announced two exclusive London gigs, on August 17th and 18th, at Hoxton Hall.  That, not uncoincedentally, is also the week they’ll release our debut album.  It’s a postage stamp-sized venue and as such tickets are selling out quicker than you can ask “who are The XX?”  The answer being a four-piece band proffering very cool, minimalist pop, slow and smooth, and with lovely rhythms and refrains to burn. 

Live dates
Mon 17 August – Hoxton Hall (buy tickets here)
Tues 18 August – Hoxton Hall (buy tickets here)
