the xx

I don't think I mentioned Ryno, his brother and I all went to see The xx when they were in town last week. My experience was less than excellent due to the rudest frat boy I've ever encountered. When I get to the point of wanting to give someone a piece of my mind, you know they are beyond rude and disruptive. The show was amazing, but we spent the entire time trying to block out this guy's apparently very important and loud conversation with his date (he was honestly shouting over the music). Anyway, we enjoyed what we could hear of the show, and I would love to see them again. It was their first ever headliner show, which I thought was cool to see. They definitely seemed excited to reach that milestone, and it showed in their performance. I couldn't decide which video to show, because I love "VCR" and the video is so appropriate with its young love scenario. However, I'm easily taken in by a live recording, which they did for "Angels" (another favorite) in Tokyo. I've decided to make it a double-feature, hope you enjoy and if they are touring near you check them out!

ps- my favorite line in "VCR:"
"And we, we live half in the daytime, 
and we, we live half at night."
