X in Concert at the Backyard Stage
Thursday, May 11, 2017, at 7:30 p.m. at St. Augustine Amphitheatre
Please Note: This event is from 2017.
Seminal punk band X will celebrate their 40th anniversary with a national tour featuring a performance at the Backyard Stage of the St. Augustine Amphitheatre on Thursday, May 11, 2017. Original band members Exene Cervenka, John Doe, Billy Zoom, and D.J. Bonebrake will all perform at this concert.
X was one of the most influential bands to come out of the punk movement during the late 1970s, and now, more than three decades later, the group continues to create groundbreaking and relevant music.
X's early albums (Los Angeles, Wild Gift, and Under the Big Sun) were dark in nature, exploring and celebrating the "L.A. Noir" world they inhabited at the time. More recent albums (Ain't Love Grand, See How We Are, Hey Zeus!, and Unclogged) demonstrate the ways in which this innovative punk band has evolved over its 40-year career.
