Expanded from its original opening date in June, the Grammy Museum finally unveils its latest exhibit, "X: 40 Years of Punk in Los Angeles." A tribute to L.A. music torch-bearers Exene Cervenka, John Doe, Billy Zoom and D.J. Bonebrake, the collection assembles photographs, instruments, clothing, handwritten lyrics by Cervenka and Doe, artwork by Cervenka and concert flyers. The display also includes screenings of W.T. Morgan's excellent 1986 documentary, X: The Unheard Music. Part portrait collage, part musical bio, the film features interviews with all four band members (as well as producer Ray Manzarek and Rodney Bingenheimer) discussing X's formation in 1977, in addition to home movies, live and studio performances and some of their best songs off their first four albums, namely "Los Angeles," "White Girl," "Soul Kitchen," and "Johnny Hit & Run Paulene."
