The XX Played The Independent - Pictures, Review

Last week, HAD managed to catch up with The XX at San Francisco's Independent, and we're glad we did. The band, who have been receiving an inordinate amount of internet hype over the last couple of months, managed to live up to expectations. Not only did they deliver on the awesomeness of their debut record, but they also managed to create a live vibe that was unquestionably well suited to their mellowed out sound.

The band will be headed eastward this week (including New York on Saturday), before heading back to Europe until spring. Catch them while you can!
