Formed in a Sydney basement in 1977, X were the most dangerous and notorious band of the first Australian punk rock explosion. Led by singer/guitarist Steve Lucas and bass player Ian Rilen (ex-Rose Tattoo), X would go on to establish themselves as one of the great pub rock acts and to record two classic albums (1979’s X-aspirations and 1985’s At Home With You, both produced by guitar legend Lobby Loyde). Despite their infamy and a string of untimely band member deaths, X would prove to be one of the most important and influential bands of the Australian underground rock scene.

Now, after more than 30 years, X have decided to call it a day, and Steve Lucas and his current lineup are embarking on their ‘Last Rounds’ farewell tour, and the band will be making a special stop off at the Ozzie Tavern to play a special intimate gig at a pub that is quickly becoming nationally renowned as a great venue for live original rock music.
