She had to leave...to Los Angeles...
If you were to attend a Pink Floyd or Who reunion, you would expect the band members to be...well, old.
As I attempted to capture my lost youth on Saturday, I was surprised at the seemingly premature aging of X. I did not expect the band to look like this:
But seriously, my grandfather should not be playing guitar in a punk band.
Jeez, the "after" shots of Exene Cervenka are just terrifying.
Notes on the performance/venue:
Very good overall; aside from their appearance, the band sounded exactly as I remember (leaving Nicole to remark: "I can't understand a thing they're saying unless I plug my ears")...except the lack of an organ took away from the blusie/Doorsie sound of their albums (Ray Manzarek must have better things to do); per Nicole, I had more hair than anybody else in the room (the punks had shaved heads...everyone else was bald); I am too fragile for a real slam pit (hey, I dominate at Violent Femmes concerts).
