Blondie August 31st, 2010

This is New York and sometimes that makes all the difference. A lot of music got its start right here in the Big Apple. Great acts like The Ramones and Blondie that span time with hits that rock forever. At this show on the last day of August the hits just keep on coming. "Debbie" Harry has still got it belting out one after another "Call Me,""One Way or Another," "Tide is High," It was nice to hear "Maria" the first single from 1999 reunion album. When you get to see a new york band in the city they always tell the best stories. Harry was happy to tell us about when young kids came down to CBGB's painting graffiti and took the band uptown, "across the border." That night that inspired "Rapture." So the band that formed here in 1974 came back on a Tuesday and played a kick ass set-list for all the hometown fans. Including a string of covers for a extra long Encore.

Blondie Encore -
Pet Cemetery - Ramones
See No Evil - Television
Can't Put Arms Round a Memory - J Thunders
