Punk rockers X
are planning on four post Christmas dates, and bringing Arizona's Calexico
along for the ride. Also included is a 12/19 gig at The Wiltern on their home turf of LA. Tickets have been on sale for a while, so if you're tardy to the party, act quick!
X was a pioneer in the LA punk scene. The four original members of X, John Doe, Exene, Billy Zoom, and D.J. Bonebrake gathered in August to record two more Christmas songs ("Jingle Bells" and "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town") to add to their forthcoming X-mas 45's. 31 years is a long time for a band to be around, dudes. Respect.
Calexico just released Carried To Dust
and visited the Guest Apartment and played our roof. Sam Beam of Iron & Wine, Douglas McCombs of Tortoise and Pieta Brown have been attracting critical acclaim for their tunes, and their musicianship was evident when put on the spot here at Baeble. These guys are a ton of fun in person.
Tickets are on sale now at Live Nation
