X was here
and this is what your ears missed
I love digital cameras. This lovely man behind me asked me to photograph the set list just after it was taped to the speaker. Exene, John, DJ and Billy belted it out like a second skin with the same fire and vigor from way back when (I started following the band in 1979 and am a veteran of over 20 shows). Billy plays the hottest riffs while barely breaking a sweat and making total eye contact throughout the show.
He also smooched any willing female after the show. Ask Laura Marrich (I got my cheek stroked!).
While the show was amazing the strangeness came from what concert goer called a "middle age mosh pit". Young twenty and thirty something brainless boys who insisted on destroying the toes and bruising the bodies of anyone in their way. And who were no even born when the band hit the scene!
If you missed them, hurry up. The next show is June 13 at House of Blues in Anaheim, CA.
