First wave punk rock legends from Los Angeles
A Family Christmas with X and the Blasters at The FillmoreThe Fillmore (1805 Geary Blvd, San Francisco, CA) Map it $35
One of the all time great bands to come out of the first wave of punk still rip thirty five years later, and with all their original members! Formed in 1977 in Los Angeles, X stand alongside the Germs and Black Flag as the Southern California bands that started it all, and somehow still do it better than anyone else. Their first two studio albums, Los Angeles and Wild Gift, are absolutely essential listening for anyone even remotely interested in rock and roll, and even all these years later, they command the stage with an energy and attitude that belies their age.
