It has been quite some time since I’ve posted something. I’m terribly sorry about that! But i have been busy with school and finding an internship and so on.. So i haven’t had any time to post anything. I’ll try to catch up on that i promise 😉
On 21th of November 2012 I visited Antwerp. And not just for the vintage stores but for The XX concert! My boyfriend bought us tickets as a surprise!
I love them so much! I know every friggin song on both of their albums…hehe. If you don’t know them you should definitely check them out!
I did not expect it to be in a large location or anything. Since they have been kind of underground. But they have worked their way up the past two years and this was their biggest show. So happy i could be there! It was at the Lotto Arena in Antwerp. When you buy a ticket for the Lotto Arena you can travel the tram and bus for free. That was a great thing!
After waiting for almost an hour outside, they finally let us in! We went straight for the shop and bought ourselves a t-shirt. I thought it was kind of overpriced, 25 euro’s, for a simple shirt with printing on it.
But I’m so happy I bought it, since it’s a great souvenir for this great memory that it was gonna become.
The support act was quite weird… I’m kind of used to weird things but this one just really didn’t fit inside my brain full of weirdness. The name of the band was Austra. There were three female singers and 2 guys supporting them with the synths, keyboard and guitar. It looked very random since they were all dressed totally differently. It also took me 10 minutes to figure out that they were singing in English! So all together it was alright, but not that amazing.
After Austra left, it was time for the XX! I was so excited 🙂 And my excitement didn’t turn into disappointment while they came on. The whole show was amazing. And that is what it was a SHOW! They were all dressed in black, they had a great setup with the tables for Jamie XX to use the instruments and the lights really added a little something to the show. I believe it was the best performance I’ve ever seen. But maybe that’s because I Love their music so much. I wish i could relive that night right now, I’m getting excited all over again while fixing up this post.
It was a great concert! If I ever get the chance to see them again I would definitely GO 😀
