    Default The xx

    Where's all The xx love?

    I'm so glad they're on the main stage & even better is the fact that they're after Edward Sharpe. A little time conflict w/Dirty Projectors & Bassnectar, but The xx comes first.

    Right, my bad.

    I'm pretty sure I'll be watching The xx's entire set. I'll be fine with 30 minutes of Bassnectar & an entire Edward Sharpe set.

    i've seen them before in a dank and tiny club and loved it. dunno how well they'll translate to a big outdoor stage, but i'm looking forward to it. hopefully they'll be dressed like NWA like they were at SXSW

    I think I may just stay at the outdoor stage that evening:

    Edward Sharpe > The xx > Hot Chip > MGMT is pretty solid.

    Then Muse afterward on the main? Shit, that alone is worth the price of admission. And saturday is the weakest day for me... dear god this year is going to be so disgustingly awesome.

    These guys are amazing live. Really annoying that they clash with the Dirty Projectors (which seems silly to me) as I would have loved to see their entire set again.
    I'm cool because I listen to music you've never heard of.

    Do they ever play that Florence and the Machine remix live? I can't seem to find any videos of it...

    They were awful. I don't know what you guys are talking about. They changed key about a million tines per song and both of their singing was FLAT. This performance ruined The XX for me. I'm questioning if they have any musical training whatsoever.

    Yeah I left early to check out a little Bassnectar and Dirty Projectors. Both were way better.

    XX live didn't do much for me. I enjoy their music, but the set was slightly boring like I expected....Dirty Projectors on the other hand, were absolutely fantastic and I was able to get a perfect spot to watch them.

    I totally agree. I was so enthused about this performance. It was the biggest disapointment of the whole weekend. They were awful.
    Even though I look it, I'm not a cop.
