BLONDIE WITH AND THE KIDS
North Adams, 7 p.m.
Blondie came howling out of the downtown scene to storm mainstream radio and nascent MTV at the very moment that punk and new wave launched a hostile takeover of popular music. The band’s major hits — Call Me, One Way or Another, Heart of Glass, and Rapture — remain timeless. Debbie Harry endures as a force to be reckoned with — prowling the stage and belting out fan favorites with the same ferocious energy that made Blondie’s CBGB shows a thing of legend. The band’s most recent album, Pollinator, was named one of Rolling Stone’s 20 Best Pop Albums of 2017 and stands alongside any in its celebrated career, fielding inspiration from the band’s action-packed, cross-pollinating past. Join us mid-field, mid-summer.   Northampton- natives And The Kids open the evening, channeling existential crises into pop euphoria. With this sleight of hand, the quartet manages to conjure chunky indie rock, blissful new wave, chamber folk, jarring avant-garde, and brawny classic rock.  MASS MoCA, 1040 MASS MoCA WAY, North Adams, MA 01247  413.662.2111
