Return of X

As just mentioned below, the Airborne Toxic Event became the second best band from Los Angeles as of last night. The band that holds the top spot - and has been holding it down for 31 years now is, of course, X. Exene, John, Billy, and DJ will be returning to New York in May to celebrate this milestone. Still no talk of a new record with Billy as far as anyone knows. Billy hasn't made an X record since Ain't Love Grand back in 1986.

Opening for them will be the Detroit Cobras, the covers band that had a strong cult following for years before unexpectedly turning into hipster darlings in 2007. This has to be tamest opener for X possibly since another Michigan band, the Fags, opened in 2003 Juliana Hatfield in 2005. That's a good thing though.
