No matter how far afield a band travels, nothing tops the energy of a hometown show. While many would be happy to headline one night at their old haunt, last month The xx sold out the famed Brixton Academy for an event spanning eight days. The band played seven nights at the venue and their very own electro-backbone, Jamie xx, also hosted a mid-week evening rave. Needless to say, it was a glorious homecoming.
