The Blonde and the Jawa

The JawaSaw Blondie yesterday afternoon, in City Hall Park.

I had missed them in their prime, somehow never catching one of their early steps before I moved to Sweden, and I did not come back to New York until they were already spent. I am amazed –but pleased– to say that 20 years later the band sounds great! They wisely played a set heavily peppered with the classics –Rapture, Dreaming, Hanging on the Telephone, One Way or Another, Heart of Glass– and about 4 new ones, including the current single Good Boys. They sounded great, just like the old Blondie, and they looked like they were having fun. Except for Chris shivering in his Jawa hood…
