Brandon K. Hernsberger, 3:45 p.m.: xx fans wear dark, dark sunglasses inside with Superglue attached to their eyeballs.
Brandon K. Hernsberger, 3:47 p.m.: The size of this crowd is INSANE for a day show. The xx should play rodeo venues only.
Adam Newton, 4:01 p.m.: Awesome. I made it in time for The xx.
Brandon K. Hernsberger, 4:15 p.m.: The xx rule the world like no other band. Smells like weed.
Adam Newton, 4:17 p.m.: The sound for this set is MUCH better than that of yesterday's show at French Legation.
Brandon K. Hernsberger, 4:20 p.m.: If a band can be underwhelming on purpose, The xx can. They've made it an art form, and it's fascinating to watch.
Chris Gray, 4:23 p.m.: I hear a lot of The Church in The xx. Amen.
Chris Gray, 4:23 p.m.: Hard to imagine how people can get so excited over a band so bottom-line unexcitable. But I like it.
Chris Gray, 4:23 p.m.: I also liked it last year when it was called Glasvegas. Except Glasvegas was louder.
