Blondie will be playing the beautiful Community Theatre of Morristown (biking distance from extrawack! HQ in Union County), this Monday night.
It's not only a rare opportunity to see Rock & Roll Hall of Famers out here in Suburban Jersey, but a chance to see real rock royalty with roots in NJ as well. Debbie Harry grew up in Hawthorne, and went to college at Centenary College in Hackettstown. Drummer Clem Burke was born in Bayonne, and was a staple in the Jersey '80s new wave rock scene even at the height of Blondie's career.
The Community Theatre is a treat, featuring great sound and sight-lines, and actually nice staff. It's a great change from NYC venues with none of those attributes, plus a commute and crazy parking fees. It's a great place to spend a hot August night.
