  3. BOOM X: The Music, Politics, and Culture of Generation X


BOOM X is an explosive solo performance that documents the music, culture, and politics that shaped Gen X. Starting at Woodstock in August of ‘69, and taking us to 1995, when the internet began to dominate our lives. In 100 minutes, Miller plays over 100 colorful characters from the days of disco, the oil crisis, Watergate, the Cold War, video games, punk rock, the (second) British Invasion, and more.
