Close, But No Mcmuffin (Concert Review)

Xiu Xiu at Hi Dive 3/27/10 C+

Xiu Xiu is a small band, a duo in fact, and on Saturday night they brought big sound and even bigger emotion to one of Denver's hippest dive bars- Hi Dive (located at 7 South Broadway).

Frontman Jamie Stewart is an intriguing figure and just watching him is always worth the price of admission, but on this night noise trumped artistry while volume drowned the vocals. I was slightly disappointed that they only played 4 or 5 songs from the new album and just when they seem to be hitting their stride the show was over.
