California X at Tommy’s Tavern, June 2012 (more by Fred Pessaro // BBG)
California X

California X hits the sweet spot between booming, riffy punk rock and bubblegum-pop. Their live show is no slouch either, as I remarked earlier this year when the band shared the stage with Nude Beach and White Lung:

…the big stand out to me was California X. The Massachusetts band worships at the altar of Dinosaur Jr and Husker Du, creating some sugar-y pop melodies buried beneath layers and layers of crunch. This is definitely a heavy band live too; one hell of a first showing in NYC.

The band will play a string of Northaast dates early next month and have set aside January 11 for NYC (venue TBA). All other tour dates are below.

California X’s self-titled debut is due via Don Giovanni on January 15. Stream “Pond Rot” from that LP below, definitely worth a listen.
