Why We're Excited To See Them: Let me live in and worship the house of The xx. If you haven't indulged in the sexy, smooth beat-driven music of Jamie xx (Jamie Smith) and Romy Madley Croft then you may just want to jump into a lava spewing volcano. Last October, L.A. was treated to an ethereal, spirit raising show at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. I was lucky enough to attend this otherworldly concert and I can personally tell you that your favorite songs by The xx will be taken to new levels of awesome when seen performed live. For those who missed the show or are just hungry for more, Coachella is our chance to experience the magic of The xx live. We insist this is a must-see, so make me proud by following the band's trademark swirling iridescent rainbow, glowing white or pulsating black X, and go see this unmissable Saturday set.
