The xx

ROBERT HAM
7 pm., Monday May 27 | $39.50-$47.50.
 
[QUIET STORM POP] The idea of putting music as intimate and understated as that of the xx in a venue as cavernous as the Schnitz seems like some kind of booking mistake. Not to say the U.K. pop band doesn’t have the fans to fill the space. Rather, it seems an odd place for songs that work best when they wrap around you like a warm hug. Don’t expect the xx to boost the arrangements or instrumentation as a result. The slowly burning guitar lines, slightly unkempt beats and the haunted vocals of Romy Craft and Oliver Sim will come across as crystalline and finely wrought as if they were being performed at the Doug Fir.
