The xx coming to the Ritz Ybor in Tampa
Knock us over with a feather: THIS is one uber-hip show we never saw coming.
British indie pop group The xx are coming to the Ritz Ybor. Yes, that's right: the blog-adored, festival-rocking, Mercury Music Prize-winning purveyors of slinky, minimalist bedroom jams like Crystalised and Islands will be in Ybor City on Feb. 7. According to Ticketmaster, tickets will start at $25 and go onsale Friday. Click here for details.
Among a certain segment of the population -- particularly the segment that always whines about how bands like The xx NEVER come to Tampa Bay -- this will come as big, big news. Get your tickets early -- this one could be packed.
