The Talkhouse is currently featuring a heartfelt and interesting article written by Geoff Rickly (Thursday) about how circumstances in his life ended up with him paying $2000 to see The xx play in New York. Well worth a read.
A couple of weeks ago I paid $2,000 to see the XX play for forty people at New York’s Park Avenue Armory. They’re not one of my favorite bands or anything. And I’m not rich. But, to me, it was worth it. That either means that it was an utter revelation OR I have no idea of the value of money.

The XX have taken to Facebook to speak out about a Croatian political organization using their song "Intro" in an advertisement against same-sex marriage.
It has come to our attention that our music has been used without our permission in a promotional advert by the Croatian organisation "U ime obitelji". We wish to state that we didn't, and would never, approve the use of our music by this organisation. To be clear, we unconditionally support the equal right to marriage regardless of sexuality.
