Back in 2011, I had an opportunity to see the X documentary film, X: THE UNHEARD MUSIC at Chicago's Bottom Lounge as part of RIOT FEST. Of course, the highlight was X themselves, performing their first album in it's entirety, and I was right there on the side of the stage seeing the action from a nearly JOHN DOE point-of-view. Now, X will do some special Four-Night Stands in Los Angeles, Chicago, Cleveland and New York - with select dates in-between. This is a fantastic opportunity for fans to see X - John Doe, Exene Cervenka, Billy Zoom, and D.J. Bonebrake - doing what they do best. Dates below.
