“The New Sound of London Town.”—New Musical Express

Buzz has been building since UK upstarts the xx made a big splash at the influential CMJ music showcase in New York City last fall. Don’t delay in securing your tickets for this much-anticipated show where they’ll display their trademark boy-girl vocals that ride on stripped-down R&B riffs. In the meantime, check out their sultry, stark, and sweetly melancholic sound on the hit single “Crystalised.” Swedish opening act jj sets the tone for the evening with a seductive mix of ambient, hip-hop, punk, and pop.

No tickets are currently available for the xx, although we may a release a few tickets late afternoon on the day of the show. Follow us on Twitter at Twitter.com/wexarts for updates.
