X @ City Winery 8/21/2014
X

Los Angeles rock icons X are in the midst of a sold-out, four-night run at City Winery, each night playing one of the first four albums in full. It kicked off Thursday (8/21) with John, Excene and the rest of X tearing through their fiery 1980 debut, Los Angeles. A sitdown joint like City Winery may be a strange place to hear such an adrenalized punk rock album as this (and tonight's Wild Gift), but it may fit the mood better when they get to Under the Big Black Sun and More Fun in the New World. After tearing through its nine short songs, they came back out with a keyboard player and an additional guitarist for a set of other X songs.

Pictures and setlist from X at City Winery night 1 are in this post. More below...
