Excene Cervenka has been one of my favorite singers since I discovered X back in the 80’s, and I’ve been fortunate to see her perform several times over the years with X and the Knitters. I saw X at the Ritz, then a couple years later at an acoustic show at the Bottom Line, and most recently at Irving Plaza. How many groups or performers can you think of who you liked as a teenager and still find interesting today?

Exene has a new record out called “The Excitement of Maybe” and she just performed at SXSW. Just before writing this post I saw on Facebook that Exene was canceling her tour because of health reasons. Here’s to wishing Exene good health so that she can continue creating and performing.
