Over the past few years, this veteran outfit hunkered down and made the Observatory their home for holiday shows. It’s
been more than three decades since the quartet released seminal album , yet the band retains its propensity for
delivering the raw intensity reflected on that record. Despite band members occasionally venturing off and working on
respective solo careers and an assortment of other side projects, when the punk icons join forces, it brings audiences
back to the glory days of the genre. Though there are always rumblings of new material, it's unlikely of ever
materializing, so seeing X live at this point in their career will have to do—and we'll happily take the opportunity.
