X at Annenberg Space for Photography, Saturday August 8th 2015

By Alyson Camus | August 10, 2015

The first thing they mentioned was Billy Zoom’s absence because of his cancer treatment, ‘He’s gonna be good,’ said John Doe with a firm confidence. Jessie Dayton, a regular in the John Doe Band, was filling in for Zoom and the band sounded as authentic as ever. They were selling some ‘Support Billy Zoom’ shirts to help him get on his feet again but the mood of the show was definitively optimistic as they were browsing their large catalogue of punk anthems.

X Ridgefield Playhouse, Ridgefield CT Friday July 17th, 2015 Reviewed

By Helen Bach | July 18, 2015

How on Earth can you listen to a band like X and sit that still as if you’re listening to a financial planner giving you tips on how to save for retirement. THIS WAS A ROCK SHOW.

Billy Zoom of X Speaks Out on his GoFundMe Campaign

By Helen Bach | July 11, 2015

But I figure it this way. How many gigs of Billy and his band X did I sneak into? I robbed the guy easily ten bucks each time back in the day- so me, I’m in. I owe him for the absolute joy he and X gave me.

Love And Prays To Billy Zoom: Needs Funding To Pay For Cancer Treatment

By Iman Lababedi | July 9, 2015

This just completely boggles my mind that at a time when Billy’s own concern should be getting better, he is worried about paying his bills. What the hell was Obamacare about? I pay like 30% more on my health insurance since Obamacare, I thought that was to help Billy Zoom and other unfortunates,

This is Connecticut not New York, and this crowd hired babysitters. Lets hope the kids are at grandmas house cuz its a late night- the sad bit? X gets an hour- and nothing more with a 12:05 posted start time. And theyre running half an hour late to boot.

X At City Winery, Saturday, August 23rd, 2014, Reviewed

By M Kriss | August 25, 2014

One fist pumping diner at a center stage however was so moved by the rendition Dancing with Tears in My Eyes to yell “Fuck Yes” directly at Exene who stood a merely dozen or so feet away and elicit her sarcastic response “Thank You Mr. Anarchy personified”. A good time had by all!

Exene Cervanka Punk Rock Goddess

By Helen Bach | June 2, 2014

I wasn’t expecting this kind of response to a comment I made, but it has been a wakeup call and has radically altered my own views as to how I want to live in this world. I always try to do what I think is right. I’ve always been very vocal and opinionated, but this experience with the media has not been positive, nor productive.

X's Exene Cervenka Has Totally Lost Her Mind?

By Alyson Camus | May 31, 2014

For some time, she had been commenting, ranting, or rambling I should say, about the weirdest conspiracy theories and especially declaring that all these dramatic school shootings we have been experiencing these past months, were hoaxes, staged for gun control, and a few days ago, she jumped on the last Santa Barbara tragedy!

What The Hell Happened to Exene Cervenka?

By Alyson Camus | March 30, 2014

Now all this could be a complete joke, a parody, and I hope it is, but if Christine Notmyrealname is indeed a parody, Exene is really taking the high road on that one, as she has posted hundreds of these batshit crazy ramblings

Exene Cervenka's Estate Sale

Blondie's "No Principals" Tour Featuring X, Roseland, Friday, October 4th, 2013, Reviewed

By Iman Lababedi | October 5, 2013

There is nothing of the elder statesperson, of the Queen Mum, of any of that stuff. By keeping cool Harry is above it, an untouchable, she remains physically provocative and less a nostalgia act. It is that and not the newer material, which make Blondie viable in 2013.

Blondie at Highline were just incredible, you could feel Debbie’s star power tingling and X? And John Doe performing “Look How We Are”? Worth the price of admission in itself. Both bands on the same bill is a real thrill, so get thrilled at Roseland on Friday October 4th

A Familly X-Mas, For 'That' Coast
