Buy all 3 nights, save $15When X came screaming out of L.A.’s late-’70s music scene, their poetic mix of punk and rockabilly was a breath of fresh air. As anyone who’s seen the band live in recent years knows, the quartet—all original members Exene Cervenka, John Doe, Billy Zoom and DJ Bonebrake—are still as rip-roaring and ferocious as ever. This rare three-night stand is a treat for long-time loyalists and new fans alike: X will play their first four albums from start to finish. This repertoire includes their scorching 1980 debut, Los Angeles, followed by 1981′s equally desperate Wild Gift, 1982′s hotrodding Under the Big Black Sun and, finally, 1983′s more expansive, twang-kissed More Fun in the New World. Expect to hear songs making their live debut and other memorable moments during these once-in-a-lifetime performances.
Can’t get enough X?
