I went and saw the Los Angeles based punk rock band X last night at the Crystal Ballroom. I’ve probably seen this band 20 or so times since the early eighties and they are tighter than ever. The 2 hour set include all the favorites done the old fashion way, Rockin! Damn my ears are still ringing as I write this. One of my goals was to take some pictures but I was disappointed with my Canon G3′s inability to take good action shots with low lighting. (Insert Global Trekker remark on how stupid I am here and why didn’t you read the manual) However I was not disappointed with the black and white disposable I brought. Those came out a lot better than I ever thought.
Here’s Billy, Exene and John blasting it out.
Introducing Billy Zoom. It appears that Billy is wowing all the college aged girls based on the gaggle positioned right in front of him.
DJ Bonebrake on the skins.
The Mosh Pit.
