Punk originals X performing at FTC’s Warehouse, Daryl’s House Club
The legendary band X, formed in Los Angeles in 1977 in the first wave of punk, can rightly be considered one of the last original members of that club still going.
“I think what keeps us going is just the preposterous idea that we’re still together doing this,” vocalist Exene Cervenka told phoenixnewtimes.com. “I’m like, ‘Wow, you’re in the best band in the world, and we’re still together.’
Cervenka, John Doe (bass/vocals), Billy Zoom (guitar) and D.J. Bonebrake (drums), having persevered over 41 years of ups and downs, are still on the road, stopping at the Fairfield Theatre Company’s Warehouse on Sunday, May 26, and Daryl’s House Club in Pawling, N.Y., on Tuesday, May 28.

Their initial four albums were produced by legendary Doors keyboardist Ray Manzarek, and two of them, “Los Angeles” and “Wild Gift,” are featured in Rolling Stone’s Top 500 Albums of All Time.
“You just get that really great feeling about it and I also know it’s not going to last forever, and times getting short, and we’ll do it as long as we can,” Cervenka said. “And, we’re happy to be doing that.”
