Like the Dodgers, punk band X are a longtime L.A. institution. Their songs of desperate living, late-night bus-stop assignations, restlessly sodden romanticism and blue-collar frustrations are a much more fitting soundtrack to life in Los Angeles than, say, Randy Newman's vacuously glib and overplayed tune "I Love L.A." The local quartet are celebrating their 40th anniversary with an upcoming Grammy Museum exhibit in October, and tonight they'll be saluted before the Dodgers' interleague game against the Chicago White Sox. X singer-bassist John Doe will intone the national anthem, and co–lead singer Exene Cervenka will throw out the ceremonial first pitch. Perhaps the hot-hitting home team will even "pull it out in the bottom of the ninth," as Cervenka and Doe exhorted on their early anthem "The World's a Mess; It's in My Kiss."
