Pictures from TLSS with Matias Aguayo & Band

Wowow! What a night it was - on a Tuesday in the middle of the festival season Matias Aguayo & Band managed to fill in the entire room! You could feel the restless tension in the air as people were gathering in the back room of Hoxton Bar. The night kicked off properly with Casper C, who played an energy-fuelled Comeme set and raised the temperature in the room to the point of boiling. Even Matias and his merry crew were impressed. Smoke machines went on full power - there was some heavy smoking in the backstage too ;) - and the three Chillean musicians came out on stage to perform their very own interpretation of dance music, LIVE. It was a compelling show with some really unique orchestrations - imagine "Rollerskate" played live in extended version and you get half the idea...

Videos from the night coming soon, meanwhile - we're posting some pictures on the blog. You can find more on Facebook, just search for Tender Love Soundsystem, join the group, and see it for yourself - absolutely unforgettable night.

At some point, outside the back room we bumped into Romy from the xx and, slightly stunned, engaged in a short but lovely conversation. I didn't dare thinking she came to see our show, nor try to imagine the entire xx with their manager would come to the TLSS party. Turned out they did! Shortly after Matias went on stage, the xx's manager came up to Phoenix - our precious door girl - and asked if he and the band could come in to see the performance...

Would you say no to the xx?
