The xx

With a spectacular location boasting a view of the Hollywood sign and tickets only available through contest giveaways, the 987FM Penthouse concert series has emerged one of LA’s best options for catching intimate performances by music’s biggest acts. Past artists featured at the 987FM Penthouse include fun., James Mercer, Mumford & Sons, Neon Trees, Fitz and the Tantrums, Silversun Pickups, Florence + The Machine, and too many more to include them all here. Tonight, the xx’s name will be added to that lengthy list thanks to concert sponsor Thrillcall, and by downloading Thrillcall’s new FREE app you can enter to win tickets to the show!

Because I love music and all things free, I downloaded the Thrillcall app myself and was really impressed. It was easy to navigate (even for someone who’s husband still teases her for not knowing which remote control to use to access Netflix), and I was able to scroll through all of tonight’s shows in the Los Angeles area at once. Clicking on a specific concert brought up the venue’s address and even a map showing how to get there, you know, in case the GPS is on the fritz. Definitely a cool way to find last-minute musical entertainment.

Tonight’s 987FM Penthouse show featuring the xx is just one of many showcases, special events, and secret shows Thrillcall has planned for the near future, so I’ll definitely keep you posted as those are revealed. In the meantime, you can download the free Thrillcall app for yourself, and check out the xx’s new track “Angels” from their upcoming release, Coexist, out September 11, 2012, below.
