The Bowery Presents: The xx + Poliça
Crisp, atmospheric sounds from indie-circuit stalwarts
The xx are sonic proof that less is more. Their shadowy, minimalist compositions have been bewitching us since 2009, and last year’s Coexist assured us they have no intention of slowing down. Plus, art-pop outfit Poliça, whom Bon Iver frontman called "the best band I’ve ever heard," will rev you up with their distinctive high-energy electronica. And get this: whether you hip shake or head bob, you’ll be doing it for free. Now get movin’. Best available Second Mezzanine seating. This event is all ages.
"On their second LP, as on their 2009 debut, the Londoners are masters of restraint, building songs from simple chord progressions, delicate guitar and keyboard ostinatos…"
