Has anyone seen the band X (American one, not the Japanese one) play live lately in the past few years? How was it?
I am having to choose between seeing them and another band (Ted Leo and the Pharmacists) that I really like in a few weeks, and I can’t decide if it would be worth it to see them. I mean, it’s X so that should be amazing - if it were 1980. I’m not sure how it would be in 2009. All the original members are playing, but it’s significantly more expensive than the other concert, and I don’t want to waste money on a bad show.
To counterpoint that, I did get to see the current incarnation of the Buzzcocks a couple of years ago, and they definitely proved that even aging punk rockers can still put on a good show. The show was actually pretty neat because there were a lot of original fans there along with the younger kids, and talking with them about seeing the band in their heyday was cool. What do you think?
