Blondie and Devo at The Warfield Theatre in San Francisco.
A great set from two New Wave Giants. Devo were fantastic, delivering all their classics with some nifty costume changes along the way.
Blondie were as amazing as ever, with my all time favorite drummer Clem Burke providing the heart and soul for all their hits. There were newer songs and covers of the Beastie Boys 'No Sleep 'Til Brooklyn' and an unexpected version of Frankie Goes To Hollywood's 'Relax'. The encore 'Heart Of Glass' featured a Damien Hirst style Disco Ball Skull projected from the L.E.D. backdrop.
Afterward Clem showed me his groovy dressing room with his newest prized possession; a pair of Keith Moon's platform boots.
