The Long Blondes w/ special guest Raven 5.25.08 @ The Entry


The Long Blondes are an explosion of glam-rock from Sheffield, England. The once, best unsigned band in NME, have stepped up to the big stage. Reminded me of Tily and the Wall and The Pipettes, except so much more rock n roll. Not to mention they have the best looking lead singer of all time in Kate Jackson.

Tonight at the 7th St. Entry The Long Blondes tore it up, with thunderstorms and tornados barely missing the cities + the fact that it was sunday night, the crowd was fairly decent. Close to 100+ people danced around the english quartet. They played well over an hour and topped the night off with an encore. For their first time in Minneapolis, Kate and crew blew everyone away with their stunning set.

Solid set by the Long Blondes, not a single weak song in the bunch, exceeded my high expectations as a live band - Kate and the band put on a very entertaining show.

Their new sophomore release "Couples" is very good, better than their first. Highlight of The Entry show was one of their new songs - "I'm Going to Hell".
