My favorite live X story.... a small club, the Bacchannal, in San Diego in the early 80's... The band had gone down to Tijuana to party that day and Exene had kept the party going. But she could still perform a great show despite being totally smashed. The concert ended when she passed out and almost landed in the crowd right in front of her, Dave Alvin and John Doe had fast reactions and grabbed the back of her jeans before she face planted.
Saw them open for Warren Zevon a few years later . Exene was pregnant, sober, and super grumpy... I've seen them live at least 20 times and that was the lowest energy worst show.. having seen her far more times drunk... she's a better performer when she's drunk.
