Legendary Rock group X coalesced in 1977 and quickly became one of the most beloved and influential Punk bands on the burgeoning Los Angeles circuit.
In the subsequent two decades, X has done an anthology, an acoustic live album and various stray tracks, while playing regular festival gigs and working around Doe and Cervenka’s fascinating solo music and acting careers. Rhino just released The X Collection, a digital compilation of the band’s first six albums, and their No Principals Tour — their first live circuit with Blondie — is one of the most hotly anticipated packages of the fall.
X plays 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 11 with Blondie at Riverbend's PNC Pavilion. $25-$55. riverbend.org.
