X

Their first four albums had a hard-driving sound that occasionally flirted with rockabilly and blues; one critic suggests that X "were not just one of the greatest punk bands, but one of the greatest live rock acts of all time." By the time of their fifth album, Ain't Love Grand!, the band had taken a more mainstream hard rock-oriented direction, and began to appear on shows such as American Bandstand. X, however, had previously appeared on television for a 1984 performance on Late Night with David Letterman. [Wikipedia]
Last time members of legendary West Coast punk band X were in NYC town, it was just "Exene Cervenka and John Doe of X". They played shows at Joe's Pub and Music Hall of Williamsburg in January. Next time it will be the full band, at Bowery Ballroom, and for three nights in a row. Tickets for the May 29-31 shows go on sale Friday ($27 / $75 3 day ticket). All dates, and video from their recent appearance on Craig Ferguson, below...

fuuuuck. You think they'll do similar shows all three nights? I can probably only swing going to one. It would be annoying if one of them was acoustic, one of them was all punk material, etc.

I will put an X on my calendar.

I highly recommend seeing them; last year's Portland OR show was the best live show I have seen in a long time

Couldn't agree more with 8:07, X last May at Irving was the show of the year.

X is my favorite band of all time (disclaimer: I lived in LA from 1980-84 and saw them about a million times). Highly recommended! They put on a blistering show, old or not.

Is the 3-day pass transferable to another person--like if I want to bring something fresh after the first two nights?

Anyone know if anyone is opening for them? I was at the last CC/Presets show which was amazing, just curious if anyone else is playing with them, given the dirt cheap $18 ticket price.

These shows have to be really different or otherwise it is going to be very annoying.
