Missed out on tickets to SITG? Or just can’t be bothered to battle the 18 hour drive up to Byron Bay? What ever your reason may be for missing the festival, you can still get a slice of the SITG action sans tent pegs, gumboots and over-priced beer.
We all know the XX are playing Melbourne next month, but hey – why not also go and see Jamie xx playing his own solo show?
Not only has Jamie xx (real name Jamie Smith, but that’s a bit boring) proved himself as a member of XX, surely one of the best English indie pop groups, but he's also an extremely talented producer. He’s remixed tracks from Adele to Radiohead, as well as producing his own original sounds, and he does it well.
So, for a double xx treat, get along and see him for a generous dose of morosely sweet pop.
