Tonight's Must-See Rock Show: X at The Metro Vs. The Go-Go's & Best Coast At Ravinia!

It's a hot August night in one of the best music cities in the world, but tonight belongs to L.A., baby, as two of its brightest lights from the city's punk underground bring their shows to town.

First, a reunited X featuring the original line-up (yes, Billy Zoom is back!) brings their "Rezoomed" tour to the Metro with an 8PM show featuring support act Dead Rock West. Tickets are $29 and, amazingly, still available as of noon today (the day of the show).

Now, the first person to tell you how crazy this is would be Go-Go's guitarist (and huge X fan) Jane Wiedlin, who will be unable to attend the show due to her own band's gig at Ravinia tonight with Best Coast.

For those who can still remember their first Go-Go crush, this is an opportunity to catch 4/5 of the original line-up on what has been billed as their farewell tour.

X, Dead Rock West
at Metro 8PM.
Tickets $29.

The Go-Go's, Best Coast, Kaya Stewart
at Ravinia 7PM
Tickets $38 (lawn), $55-80 (seats)

So, which show would we choose if forced to pick between the two?

Why, the Go-Go's, of course.

For starters, it's still summer and the music of the Go-Go's and Best Coast is just about as summery as they make these days. Also, we still have quite the crush on Jane Wiedlin, although the band's real secret weapon, Kathy Valentine, is no longer part of the band. Her own Austin-based band The Bluebonnets are an all-female blues-based rock band to put on your musical bucket list.
