X: The Human Condition Live


“The important thing is this: To be able at any moment to sacrifice what we are for what we could become.”
– Charles DuBois

Synthesizing music, film, and an unforgettable live experience, this innovative indie band, X: THC is evolving and redefining how a live show is presented and experienced within the model of the music industry.

The immersive, live concert performance is accompanied by X: THC”s original film, X: The Human Condition, whose wistful and mysterious imagery creates an utterly unique and uplifting experience. Citing Tim Burton, Michel Gondry, Jean Cocteau, and The Brothers Grimm as major influences, X: THC’s visual companion to the performance is a surrealistic, psychological trip inside the human subconscious.

The music of X: The Human Condition has been featured on board Continental Airlines, on Mexican TV’s Las Trampas del Deseo, in rotation on many worldwide online radio stations, and on over 100 U.S. college radio stations. The “little indie project that could” has received rave reviews globally, from as far as Australia, Greece, Portugal, Turkey, Italy, Argentina, Germany, Columbia, The Virgin Islands, Mexico, Poland, Brazil, Albania, Russia, Hungary, Latvia, The UK, Peru, and Japan.

X: THC are probably the kind of band that you’d enjoy so much you would want to keep them to yourself, only you won’t be able to, because you’re so damned excited about the music…”
