X Bowery Ballroom May, 31st 09

These shows were highly anticipated, at least for those in the know. Selling out Friday, Saturday and packing them in on Sunday. Offering a three day ticket for $75 helped the sellout for sure. Who's X? Lots of people down in the LES didn't know on Friday night. At the show on Sunday a ticket appeared for $10 from a women. She could not find a friend who knew eXactly what X was. If you don't, you'd better find out. They rock old school punk. LA's Scene would not be the same without them. Rodney Bingenheimer, the mayor of sunset strip, once said "they made you," well the wast coast you. Doors keyboardist Ray Manzarek help bring them into the studio to record "Los Angeles." The city of angles gave them a certificate of recognition in the 80s for the song. When They played it on Bowery ever one freaked out. So, So much fun. The original line up Having as much fun as us on the floor. Exene Carvenka was great in polka-dots. After a double encore, Billy Zoom came out for pictures. Then latter at the merch table John Doe signed posters and was cool with fans. All around one of the best shows, one to get all dressed up for.
