The xx have played D.C. three times in the last six months. All sold out shows. The latest show was Saturday night at the 9:30 Club opening for Hot Chip. The two bands hooked up for a short tour after they both appeared at Coachella earlier in the month.
Not much new to report as far as their set. The lights were better than I expected and due to all of Hot Chip’s gear on the stage, The xx were forced to play in a small space on the center of the stage, which would have been great if I had a 14-24mm. Still, I got all three band members in a few frames. Although I tried out my 50mm/1.4 for about half a song, almost all of these photos were taken with my Nikon D3 and 24-70/2.8. All photos are at ISO 3200.
