Sold Out: Billy Idol, Bleachers, Priory

When: Mon., Dec. 15, 7 p.m. 2014

For eight years, X96 has been throwing its huge December concert Nightmare Before Xmas, featuring popular national and international acts, and this year's lineup shouldn't disappoint. Bleachers is the solo project of former Fun. lead guitarist Jack Antonoff, and his debut album, Strange Desire—released in July—is bursting with bright, earnest '80s-influenced pop, much like the John Hughes movies Antonoff was inspired by when he was writing it. Portland, Ore.-based duo Priory (Brandon Rush and Kyle Sears) will bring more catchy electro-pop, as heard on their shimmery Weekend EP, released in October. And headlining the night is none other than Billy Idol, who most fans of Priory and Bleachers probably know only as the singer of "White Wedding," if that. But the 59-year-old singer hasn't been resting on his laurels: He recently released Kings & Queens of the Underground—his first set of new material in almost 10 years—and an autobiography, titled (what else) Dancing With Myself.
