Blondie tops Hudson Valley weekend events
Legendary new wave band Blondie headlines The Capitol Theatre this weekend, giving fans a chance to catch a group that's flourished in a number of music genres.
Sunday: Blondie at The Capitol Theatre
For most bands, being welcomed into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is something to be celebrated. For Blondie’s 2006 induction, however, lead singer Debbie Harry feuded with former band members, whose requests to reunite for a performance with Harry that night were rebuffed at the podium. No matter who was at fault that evening, it’s a shame, because Blondie’s contribution to the music spectrum has been as diverse as it is impressive, crushing in genres ranging from disco (“Heart of Glass”), rock (“Call Me”), reggae (“The Tide is High”) and even rap (“Rapture”). Today, the New York City-based band continues to perform under the name Blondie, with original members Harry, guitarist Chris Stein and drummer Clem Burke performing with three newer members to promote their latest album, “Panic of Girls.”
When: 8 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 7
