Best show of the day:
-2:00 p.m. Dum Dum Girls with Blondie/Spotify Showcase @ Spotify House

Three fashionable ladies and one guy all wearing black and makeup made up the band known as Dum Dum Girls. Garage rock instrumentation consisting of simple chord progressions with extraordinary vocals from the indie pop voice of Jules draws you in like a siren from the Odyssey, with small tailings of soft delay in each word. The show was pushed over the top with a surprise appearance by Blondie (Debbie Harry) leading the girls in her song, “Dreaming.”
