X at Crescent Ballroom, 11/29/13

Of all the stars of the '80s punk scene, only one band is still having an impact some 35 years after forming: X. Mixing driving punk energy with rockabilly riffs, staccato rhythms, unexpected dual vocal drive, and socially conscious lyrics, X was a defining voice in the punk movement. Their uncompromising ability to defy perceptions and expectations keeps the band going today. X played Crescent Ballroom, Friday, November 29.
