X -Still Got Some Tricks Up Our Sleeve

X Billy Zoom John Doe Exene DJWho says you can’t teach an old dog new tricks? X will be performing a couple new tricks this year. With our 4 album plays in LA, NYC, Chicago and Cleveland the band will be performing their first four records in their entirety with guest musicians helping the band to recreate live the recorded versions of their songs. Some of the songs have never been performed live by the original line up.

The band will be turning it down a notch (so to speak) and concentrating on the songs, with the West Coast Acoustic Tour – performing acoustic versions of your favorite X songs, beginning at Pappy & Harriet’s and finishing up with a headlining spot at Pick-A-Thon in Happy Valley OR.

And we’ve still got a bunch of rock shows all over these United States. We hope to see you soon in a city near you! Here’s to a GREAT SUMMER!
