It's been a sweet time warp for me yet again. Last night, X, played The Cabooze here in Minneapolis as part of their 13:31 tour. They absolutely blew the house down! With 2 encores, it must have been a 2+ hour set of vintage p-rock. If they play your town, I would seriously recommend seeing them. They still have the energy, flow, and fuck it all attitude of 20 year olds hitting their bliss for the first time. Want a set list? I'd check their entire catalog! The audience was wonderful as well. We had kids from 18-70 get into the zone. We must have drenched the venue in sweat. One guy with a 'hawk lost all his spikes through the show. Was great!
Billy Zoom showed his trademark grace after the show. He was accessible and clearly appreciative of all the fans. A lot of photos were snapped. He really went the extra (s)mile . I just shook his hand and thanked him for such a great night. X are still amongst the best live performers in the business.
My ears are ringing. Today, it's damn well worth it. Turn out for X and their solo efforts. These guys love what they do and will keep doing it. Last night was what music should be all about.
