HITS Daily Double


X, a band whose first signature song about Los Angeles had the chorus of “get out,” will be honored by the Los Angeles Dodgers before their home game on 8/16 against the Chicago White Sox.

Exene Cervenka, who is in a league of her own as a vocalist, will be throwing out the ceremonial first pitch. John Doe is scheduled to sing the National Anthem; guitarist Billy Zoom and drummer D.J. Bonebrake are scheduled to be interviewed during the pre-game show, according to the Los Angeles Times.

And if you are among the many who struggle to identify tunes Dieter Ruehle plays on the organ, he’s got a real stumper in store for the game: “Blue Spark,” a track from 1982’s Under the Big Black Sun.

After hitting the showers, X will play Pershing Square downtown on 8/19 as part of their 40th anniversary tour.

We’re wondering who will get this honor next? Los Lobos? Beck? Marty and Elayne?
