The xx and Austra @ Hammerstein Ballroom, 1/24/2013
The XX
Austra

The xx played Hammerstein Ballroom last night (1/24). The show was a make-up date for their show at the Bronx's Paradise Theatre that was supposed to happen back in October but got canceled due to Hurricane Sandy. Did you go last night? Austra, who is due for a new album sometime, opened the show and she's still got  Sari and Romy Lightman as indispensable backing singers.

Both bands play Hammerstein again tonight (1/25) and it's sold out. If you're looking for something to do after the show, Austra DJs late night at Glasslands with Heathered Pearls also on the decks. Tickets are still available.

Was it required for the fashion institute girls in the front row to wear identical over sized floppy stocking caps?

Sorry 2:22 it's you who doesn't know what you're talking about.

The only thing 2:07 was wrong about is the use of the word WAS as Austra IS and always will be terrible.

The XX were so boring. The fat chick knows like 3 super simple chords on the guitar and every song features the same 3 chords over and over again. How this band got so big is beyond me!

You gotta love the XX. Great band.

Posted by mike | May 5, 2013 11:43 AM

Eh punk?....maybe punkish attitudes i wouldn't call the music that though....not much for labeling but that seems way off...great band though.
