Blondie with Deap Vally “Rage and Rapture Tour” 07/26/17 Toronto

The Sony Centre hosted a fantastic lineup showcasing the lineage of powerful women at the forefront of rock and roll.
Kicking the night off was California’s Deap Vally, a hard garage rock duo featuring Julie Edwards and Lindsey Troy. Rooted in swampy blues Deap Valley, glammed out in sequins and big big hair, was last in Toronto opening for Wolfmother and we can’t wait to see them again!

Next on the roster was Garbage.

 

Last but certainly not least was Blondie. There’s not much I can say about Debbie & Co. that hasn’t been said better for the last 40 years. Decked out in a bee costume (latest album: Pollinator) with a cape that read “STOP FUCKING THE PLANET” Debbie Harry sounded absolutely amazing. Preening and posing for the crowd, shaking hands and commanding the stage in fine form. This one was definitely a bucket list for me. Also if you’re on Facebook (it’s on the internet) make sure to follow guitarist Chris Stein, a talented photographer who has documented the NYC scene from the band’s early days, right up until today
