X guitarist Billy Zoom at Irving Plaza, 11/30/2012
X

Los Angeles (punk) rock legends X are currently celebrating their 35th year as a band and still boast the same line-up that gave us their essential 1980 debut album (and others). John Doe, Exene Cervenka, Billy Zoom and DJ Bonebrake were in NYC this weekend for two nights at Irving Plaza (11/30 - 12/1) and we've got pictures from Friday's show in this post. There's a few more dates left on X's schedule and the band plays Washington, DC tonight.

More pics from Irving Plaza (none of openers Reverend Horton Heat or Not in The Face unfortunately) are below, along with the setlist.

Seriously, regardless of your musical preference, everyone should see X at least once in their lives.

8:39 was into Disturbed last year. Just discovered this blog - real excited about moving to NYC after he graduates to start a band.

Saw them in Dallas 11/3 @The Granada Theater. Great Show. Seen them a few times, and they never play Adult Books.

Billy Zoom doesn't seem to age!

For the most part, the same songs in DC last night, where X pretty much blew the roof off the 9:30. I wish younger bands would go see X so they'd know what a great rock show looks and sounds like.

Note to editor: "Once over 2" on the set list is shorthand for a song called "The Once Over Twice".

I get it, being an intolerant prick and hating a thoughtful man is the new not being an intolerant prick and hating a thoughtful man
