– Exene Cervenka is touring for free. Well, record stores anyway.
In spirit of National Record Store day on April 17, the lead singer of X, who has a solo career, going is about to kickoff a tour of in-store performances at record shops along the West Coast.
"The reason I am touring independent record stores from San Diego to Seattle this April is that I want to play for free, to people of all ages, at a reasonable hour, in a place we love to be. I'm touring at my own expense because I don't want the economy to stand between my music and people that might want to hear it. Yes, I hope I sell some aprons and a few cds, but bring your X records, the kids, shop
independent, and let's have a party."
