Xiu Xiu brought their brand of quiet, loud, quiet experimental noise music to the multi-art facility known as 3S Artspace in Portsmouth, NH on Friday April 14th along with The Boston indie pop 3 piece, Lilith. The drama that Xiu Xiu creates during their live show can often be unsettling. Parts of their set are so quiet and delicate that I held back from taking photos due to disruption from the camera shutter. Jamie Stewart uses those moments of near silence to create juxtaposition by screaming and stuttering into the microphone words of distaste and dissolution along with Shayna Dunkelman’s wild sense of rhythm. Xiu Xiu would provide the perfect soundtrack to a post-apocalyptic love story co-directed by David Lynch & Quentin Tarantino.
