It remains a bit baffling to me that the xx is consistently able to pack big rooms, but I suppose there will always be a place for sad, goth-tinged, mistily boring English pop. Tonight's one of those cases, though, where special mind should be paid to the openers. Hundred Waters wield a tech-savvy variety of screwed-up folk and triphop, and the Gainesville, Florida, group is capable of breath-sucking sounds that are like being immersed in cold water. Their skeletal songs are passionately icy, if such a thing makes sense, and Hundred Waters recently signed to Skrillex's label, so it's possible that their future work will be more intent on moving the floor. Their self-titled debut, however, remains a willfully weird, low-key listen. NED LANNAMANN
