One Way or Another: Blondie in Dallas

Za za zoom, Blondie lit up the stage Saturday night following Nico Vega in the Granada Theatre, Dallas. I loved it. The band has a fuller sound than on thin vinyl -- more bass, more clangy electric guitars, more drums and keyboards, more Debbie Harry. This was loud enough and fast enough to satisfy rockers of all stripes, and the singer is as cool in person as her mediated persona suggests. I dig! This was like a little part of Heaven on Earth.

Set list. They added in a dose of ZZ Top toward the end as a Texas treat.  Some of the songs are from the new album, Panic of Girls (2011) -- they're good.

Today's Rune: Wholeness.

I certainly can identify with that song: "One Way or Another I'm gonna getcha getcha getcha ..." Still, Blondie is original, that's for sure.

Glad you had fun, man.

Debbie Harry never seemed to fit the stereotype.

Erik, I would have LOVED that show. Debbie is one smooth chick-ever cool. Great set list, too!
