Boy, is it good to see King's X down this way again. They've scattered somewhat since their days as an exclusively local act, but that's no reason to welcome them home anyway. Saturday will be the hard-rock trio's first show in the area since drummer Jerry Gaskill's February 2012 heart attack; since then Gaskill's New Jersey home was wiped out in Hurricane Sandy and now bassist/singer DUg Pinnick has announced he needs a hernia operation after their current tour. (Sheesh.) But if any band has some good karma coming to it, it's this one. Early King's X albums like Out of the Silent Planet and Gretchen Goes to Nebraska were touchtones for some of the biggest bands of the '90s, especially Pearl Jam and Alice In Chains. If they're still rocking after all they've endured recently, who's going to stop them now?
