The British pop band the xx play on themes of exposure and intimacy in the immensity of the Park Avenue Armory drill hall, inverting almost all of what is expected in rock.
For the last week or so, The xx have staged a series of intimate performances at Park Avenue Armory in New York City. Taking place in a custom-built stage within a cube, each show is limited to an audience of 45 and tickets to the sold-out performances are currently fetching thousands from third-party resellers. For the vast majority of us who won’t be able to catch the concerts in person, the band has shared a behind-the-scenes video. Watch it at The New York Times’ website
Following the residency, The xx will embark on a brief U.S. tour.
