Debbie Harry in a sleeveless King Kong t-shirt and red beret is more than we deserve.

Blondie: Debbie Harry & Chris Stein at Whisky a Go Go, February 1977, via wmagazine

(Pinning down the date any tighter than that is tough. Blondie played The Whisky from Feb. 9-12, with Tom Petty & The Hearbreakers opening, and Feb 16-20 with Ramones headlining. Can you even imagine?!? There are tons of pictures of Debbie and Blondie and friends in LA this month, and I still can’t quite wrap my head around it. I feel like someone could probably write a whole book about this single month.)
