When we were helping my sister move, Chris lent my sister a CD to a band called The XX. I had never heard of them before, but found them enjoyable and a nice break from reading out loud. The most amazing thing, though, was that the understandably cranky three year old would calm down and her body would relax the second the music started playing.
I just got back from a week vacation to the east coast to visit Chris and we went and saw The XX in concert. We stood out on the lawn and watched as lights danced on stage and the crowds went wild. Below is my favorite song and the one they played on encore.
