Show Announcements: The xx, Slobberbone, Speedealer, Electric Six, Local Natives, Forever The Sickest Kids, Blue October and others

When the British indie/new wave/minimalists, The xx released their debut album xx last year, the ripple that formed in the blogosphere was somewhat polarizing.

But, love 'em or hate 'em, they're bringing their turntables and Dieter's Dance Party haircuts to the Granada Theater on Friday, October 8.

Tickets are one sale now for $22 over at the Granada's web page.

And, since Slobberbone is back together, might as well check them out at what is sure to be a balls-out, gritty performance on Saturday, August 7, also at the Granada Theater.

More show announcements after the jump.
