X- 40th Anniversary Tour at One Eyed Jacks

All Original Members!

FOUR DECADES AFTER THE INCEPTION OF X, ONE THING IS CLEAR: X WAS NOT ONLY ONE OF THE MOST INFLUENTIAL BANDS TO CRASH OUT OF THE PUNK MOVEMENT OF THE LATE ‘70S, BUT THEIR MUSIC CONTINUES TO BE SONICALLY GROUNDBREAKING. SONGS WRITTEN DURING THE GROUP’S INCEPTION ARE AS RELEVANT AND INVENTIVE TODAY AS THEY WERE IN 1977.

X is an American punk rock band, formed in Los Angeles, California in 1977. Established among the first wave of American punk, the original members are vocalist Exene Cervenka, vocalist/bassist John Doe, guitarist Billy Zoom, and drummer DJ Bonebrake. They released seven studio albums from 1980 to 1993. After a period of inactivity during the mid to late 1990s, they reunited in the early 2000s, and currently tour.

X are considered one of the most revered punk rock bands and, by some critics, one of the best rock bands. One critic also suggests that X are one of the all-time greatest live rock performers. X received an Official Certificate of Recognition from the City of Los Angeles in acknowledgment of their contributions to Los Angeles music and culture. They were also influential on various genres of music, including punk rock and folk rock.

In 2003, X's first two studio albums, Los Angeles and Wild Gift, were ranked by Rolling Stone magazine as being among the 500 greatest albums of all time. Los Angeles was ranked 91st on Pitchfork's Top 100 Albums of the 1980s.

X appeared at the 2008 SXSW Festival. Footage of their performance is viewable on Crackle. X appeared at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival on April 19, 2009 and at the All Tomorrow's Parties festival in Minehead, England from the 15–17 May where they have been invited to perform by the festival's curators The Breeders.

On June 18, 2011 the band headlined the 3rd Annual Johnny Cash Music Festival in Ventura, CA, USA.
