Best Concert of Past 12 Months

X @ Tremont Music Hall

Staff Pick

For us music scribes, it’s tough to pick the best concert of the year from an array of fine shows that passed through town. Yes, even in the Queen City, there are many kickass shows every year. But the best show during this past year, hands down, was the return of the legendary LA punk/roots band X. The original members — John Doe, Exene Cervenka, D.J. Bonebrake and the inimitable rockabilly-influenced guitarist Billy Zoom — showed how a quartet of 50-somethings can rock your socks. The good news is they’re coming back August 23 at the same venue. Don’t be caught sittin’ at home scratching your butt while watching Friends reruns this time around.
