If you’re going to the X! Fest this Saturday, don’t show up until 9 p.m. The barbecue originally scheduled in the parking lot next to the National Bohemian Home has been canceled. Music will now start at 10 p.m.

We saw that Psychedelic Horseshit is scheduled to appear at the fest. Which reminded me: Every several months, one of my old L.A. friends, veteran punk rock guitarist Carmen, sends a group of us a compilation of all the band names that have played the city during that time. She headlined the last one, in fact, "Psychedelic Horseshit." Here’s her most recent list for your weekend viewing pleasure (I know D-Town has some great names and I’m not sure this list can top the death-metal band that e-mailed me several weeks ago called, um, Satan’s Toilet but y’all still might have some catching up to do when presented with the list below:
