  1. I enjoy X’s music. I haven’t seen “X: The Unheard Music” but I’ve never heard of anything related to the band being considered “family-friendly” before.

      • Hi, Anna. Do you know if “X: The Unheard Music” shows any clips of X’s concerts at the Hong Kong Cafe? The Hong Kong Cafe was a rock music club in L.A. Chinatown, during the late 1970s- early 1980s. My dad, who is the late Bill Hong, was the manager of Hong Kong Low Restaurant. The HK Cafe club was located on the upper floor of Hong Kong Low.
