Exene Cervenka Cancels Tour Due to Illness

She added the intense heat she encountered during her performance at Austin music festival South By Southwest may have triggered her disease to flare. Cervenka, who fronted seminal Los Angeles punk band X, has been touring in support of her latest solo album, The Excitment of Maybe, a collection of folk and country-hued songs that, though voiced by a punk veteran, feature stories of love that seem to come from the unguarded soul of a teenage girl.
Cervenka played some of these songs at Big's Bar & Grill a few weeks back before hitting the road. The quality of the work and her dedication to the craft of songrwriting were ever-present. We hope she feels better soon.
