In case you missed it, The xx are currently playing a residency at NYC’s Park Avenue Armory that’s unlike any show they’ve played before. For the past few days, the group gathered fans into a cube-shaped tent to perform an intimate and groundbreaking live performance. Only 45 fans are admitted per concert (they play 2 a night), and tickets are near-impossible to find, but The New York Times has given us behind-the-scenes footage of one of the most intriguing concert series in recent memory.
The xx Get Intimate at Park Avenue Armory
“It’s very different than a tour and it’s great to have the opportunity to do something different. Just the fact that we’re so exposed and we’re surrounded by this small amount of people – even in this big space – it still feels very intimate to me.” – Romy Croft, The xx
Have a look at the mesmerizing video and experience The xx, even if you can’t make it out to the show (and if you can, then we’re extremely jealous).
