heatwave-posterAnd now. The End is near. And so I draw the final curtain. This is the last installment of my Heatwave photos …. The Pretenders @ Heatwave 1980.

It was the first and only time I ever got the see the Pretenders. Or for that matter, Chrissie Hynde. I can’t say that I remember the set … but it was the Pretenders! It was 1980! They were kicking ass and taking names! How could they NOT be hot! They had released their fist albumn in 1979 and it was sonic gold. So I was actually pretty thrilled o get to see them. And to see them in this line up of bands …. nothing short of brilliant!

They even played a full set. No skimping there that day! And through the wonders of the Interwebs I found the set list … AND … the audio for everything they played! Found it on YouTube! Damn … now even I can relive the set!

And lest we forget … there are also my photos. So enjoy the show … and the photos!
