The past, the present and the future of punk rock align tonight at this San Pedro brewery. X spent the past year celebrating their 40th anniversary with a series of high-profile shows, but the performances weren’t a farewell tour so much as a reminder that the punk-roots band still have plenty of firepower onstage even if they haven’t released any new music in decades. You could say that Mike Watt & the Missingmen are also a nostalgia-minded combo, as the San Pedro bassist-singer’s project often covers songs by his breakthrough 1980s band, The Minutemen, but those insanely intense, minute-long fusillades of condensed art-punk and poetic funk sound just as bracingly inventive as Watt’s more recent solo tunes. L.A. Witch are an unusually mesmerizing trio who fuse Hope Sandoval–style dream pop with Gun Club punk intensity.
