X/Dead Rock West 

When: Wed., July 22, 8 p.m. 2015
Price: $32 ADV/$38 DOS
“Cleveland actually does rock,” said shaggy-haired X singer Exene Cervenka last year as the veteran punk band started a three-night stand at Music Box Supper Club by playing its first two albums (and then some) in their entirety before a crowd that filled about three-fourths of the club. It was a great show as singer-bassist John Doe proved he could still sneer and sound like he means it on the hard-driving “Johnny Hit and Run Paulene,” and guitarist Billy Zoom (who's sitting this date out as he battles cancer) let loose some tasty solos in songs such as “Sugarlight” and “Los Angeles.” Drummer DJ Bonebrake proved to be no slouch. He kept time with accuracy and hit just as hard as he ever has. Expect the band to play a set of hits for tonight's gig which coincides with the Alternative Press Music Awards (where the band will receive an Icon Award). (Jeff Niesel)
