PRETENDERS - US Festival, Devore, CA 1983

Hard left turn from Metallica into something a touch more chica-friendly, perhaps...

Saw Chrissie Hynde and her latest guitarist play in the acoustic mode at Amoeba Music last night. Kinda raw-n-ragged, but the old gal's voice still sounds fantastic, and she looks good too. Clearly a bit of a spiky type, our Chrissie, but that's why we totes heart her.

Plus, she could flat-out kick the asses of every member of Fall Out Boy without spilling her veggie burrito.

As for this show, it's not the "U.S. Festival" as stated above, but the good old 1983 US Festival. Y'know, Van Halen (as previously posted here), Ozzy, The Clash, David Bowie, New Wave Day, Heavy Metal Day and all. Classic boot, great sound, all the hits, can't beat the price. Thanks to Dino & Princess!
