X, the famed Los Angeles punk rock band will be performing shows in the Southern California area beginning this May. X is John Doe, Exene Cervenka, Billy Zoom and DJ Bonebrake will kick off the tour on May 4 in Solana Beach and will be in Los Angeles at the Greek Theater on May 5 with Los Lobos and Mariachi El Bronx.

Exene Cervenka said about the bands three decades longevity, “”Staying alive. We stayed alive longest. We’re the ones with the staying power. It makes me very, very sad. The thing is it’s the luck of the draw. We’d all love to see the Ramones play tomorrow night. Unfortunately, we can’t. Or Joe Strummer. Or all the people that were great. We miss them all very much. Our longevity is in tune with that.”

They will then continue touring with Pearl Jam in Europe during the summer.
