The story's weak, but most of the effects are nice.
Previously, previously, previously, previously, previously, previously, previously.
So then my phone died, so this crap is all I have with which to say to you "The XX is a band you should care about very much indeed."
But I will relate that I had this conversation with literally four different strangers at this show:
Me: "The XX!"
Them: "My favorite band!"
Me: "Massive Attack!"
Me: [ wild gesticulation ] PLEASE PROMISE ME YOU WILL GOOGLE THESE WORDS [ wild gesticulation ]
Them: [ Ok yeah nod and smile and back away slowly ]
You kids. What is this I don't even.
Well OK, that time I saw them in a tiny basement from five feet away with only a hundred other people, that was better, but even though I was pretty far back this time it was still fucking transcendent.
