X ANNOUNCE MORE SUMMER TOURING

KCRW Annenberg Show & Hopscotch, Kaboo Festivals Added To Itinerary

 

Performing First Four Albums – In Their Entirety – In Orange County

 

Hear Los Angeles, Wild Gift, Under the Big Black Sun &

More Fun in the New World

 

(Los Angeles – June 2, 2015)  X , the long-time leaders of the L.A. Punk Scene, have announced more of their summer, live concert tour plans.   The original line-up will perform at the KCRW “Sound in Focus” Annenberg Live Series on August 8th with Dwight Yoakam.  The concert is free for all ages; those interested in attending need to RSVP at KCRW.comX have also been confirmed to perform at this year’s Hopscotch festival on September 12th in Raleigh, NC as well as September 19th at the Kaboo Festival held at the Del Mar Fairgrounds in Del Mar, CA.

 

As was previously announced, X will bring their 4-Album Show plays to Orange County in July. In addition, an east-coast / mid-west swing will bring the quartet to Ridgefield, CT on July 17th before working their way south to DC and then across to the mid-west with plays in Cleveland, Detroit and Chicago.   X will then head east again with a show in Boston before wrapping up with 3 shows at the City Winery in NYC, August 1-3.

 

Formed in 1977, X quickly established themselves as one of the best bands in LA’s flourishing first wave punk scene. Featuring vocalist Exene Cervenka, vocalist/bassist John Doe, guitarist Billy Zoom, and drummer DJ Bonebrake, their debut 45 was released on the seminal Dangerhouse label in 1978. While these songs were later re-recorded for their second album, the versions on Adult Books / We’re Desperate reveal X’s raw talent for totally sincere songwriting and stripped-down rock n’ roll.  This past April, the band re-issued that first single, in its original 7-inch format, as limited edition colored vinyl.

 

The original line-up of X remains John Doe, Exene Cervenka, Billy Zoom, and D.J. Bonebrake.
