Concert Review: The XX - Merriam Theater, Philadelphia 10/4/10
Zola Jesus and Warpaint, a curtain was lowered over the stage with a massive letter "X" in the center. After the theater lights turned off the curtain was released and feel to the stage floor just as the band played their first note. An array of lighting effects and a sound system that pulsated through the theater making chairs and bones vibrate created the ideal atmosphere to showcase this incredible band. The only downside was that their set was relatively short, roughly 50 minutes. I'm exited to hopefully hear some new material in the future and check out The XX in concert again.
