X+X - Nitetrotter Session
Illustration Calvin Whitehurst / Sound Engineering Nathan Gregory / Text Nathan Gregory - February 27, 2012
When we first started this blog, we started in a record store called Mixtapes in East Moline, IL before we relocated to Chicago. One of the regulars around Mixtapes was our best buddy Heat Jones. Heater used to ride deep in this big huge black van with a Raiders logo on it. Other than just being one of the coolest guys the Quad Cities has to offer, he also is the man behind X+X. Heater mixes all his favorite styles of music from psych rock to noise which creates his original style of music. Add Craig on bass and Heat's captain beefheart style vocals and you have psychedelic concoction . We invited X+X up to Chicago to play a sick show at Schwag City with Milton Melvin Croissant from Denver. Heat and crew who always come party ready opened the night and really gave Chicago a new sound that they embraced. Check out X+X live from Schwag City.
X+X - live number one, live number two and live number 3
Recorded at Schwag City in Chicago, IL
