Youth Nabbed as Sniper

Thirty-five years ago today, Blondie played a show at the famed Old Waldorf in San Francisco. KSAN was on hand to record the festivities, making it possible for people like yourself to listen to it today and wish you were there. Apparently this recording was taken from the radio station’s production reel, so the sound quality is as good as it gets. I want to say that this was a seminal show in San Francisco punk history for some reason, but I cannot remember any specifics right now. It’s not like I was at the gig or anything—I was born about six and a half months later. Do you care? Probably not. It is a live Blondie recording from when they were still a couple years away from becoming a jukebox staple at every hipster douchebag bar across America. Not only that, but it sounds fantastic. What else do you need to know? If you are a fan, you already know that you are going to love this. Thank me in the comments section for once in your miserable lives.
