Blondie @ Washington Square Park

Blondie, one of the top bands to ever come out of CBGB, co-headlined the "CBGB Forever" rally/benefit in Washington Square Park today (Aug 31, 2005). Earlier in the month, Debbie Harry played a solo show at CBGB for the same cause.

It wasn't really a reunion. In fact, it wasn't that long ago that I saw them at MSG after they put out a new album. OK, it was six years ago, but according to their gigography, the last show they played as Blondie was in 2004.

Their sixth show ever was at CBGB. They were called the Stillettoes then. Total they played CBGB 36 times, the last of which was on May 7, 1978 (assuming the gigography is correct).

I like that song "Maria", which I think was off their last album.

Believe it or not, they actually released an album in 2003 (it came out in the U.S. in 2004) called "The Curse of Blondie". Unfortunately, it mostly sucks except for the single "Good Boys" and a few others ("Undone"). No Exit (the album referenced above that came out in '99; I was always at that MSG Theater show and Joey Ramone was sitting in the next row over) is much better.

Blondie toured Australia earlier this year, as well as Europe I believe.

Blondie is just one of those great things that can happen to a band and New York.
