New York City, CBGB’s 14 October 2006
Set List: Hanging on the telephone > Call me > The tide is high > The dream’s lost on me > I wanna be your boyfriend > Mother of earth > Rip her to shreds > One way or another > Poison heart > Please please

I’ve never seen so many camera flashes go off at a show.  It was bizarre. It was Blondie ‘opening’ for the Dictators. It was the second-to-last night before CBGB’s closed down for good… When asked about my most memorable shows in New York City, I always have a hard time deciding between Erykah Badu in a Tribeca basement and this one. As a matter of fact, I still get the chills listening to Blondie’s acoustic version of “Hanging on the telephone”.
Please excuse the not so pristine recording quality. There was a lot of pushing and shoving, let alone this being a hand held shot to begin with. .

Tools: Sony HDR-HC1, Sony ECMHST1

October 14, 2006. The night before CBGB’s doors closed for good. On stage, Blondie.  Easily one of the most goosebumpy moments I have ever experienced in any New York City club.  Below is our footage from said night, presented here for the very first time.
