Blackie is a gorgeous black woman who sings gorgeous covers of classic Blondie songs, with a backing supergroup made up of members of the Shins, Coffin Break, Alien Crime Syndicate, and the Minus 5. Dejha Colantuono, formerly of the Rotten Apples, works wonders with her raspy, throaty, phone-sex-operator voice. If Debbie Harry and Otis Redding had a secret love child, she’s leading this band.
