In March 2014, the xx will Coexist with tiny groups of New York City fans at the Park Avenue Armory. The English trio will be throwing 25 concerts in just 11 nights, capping the crowd size at 40 per. Tickets will soon be available at the venue's website.

Oliver Sim, Romy Madley Croft, and Jamie Smith performed a similar feat this summer at the Manchester International Festival, bringing their unquestionably intimate music to a very intimate environment, while harking back to the Beatles' early days.

As noted on SPIN's in-depth 2012 profile on the xx, the trio are notoriously shy, and perhaps best suited to concerts that feel truly personal. Still: two shows a night and three on the weekends "Chained" in a "Basic Space" ... sounds, um, Try-ing.
