CFCU Downtown Ithaca Summer Concert Series Presents Maddy Walsh & The Blind Spots
August 27 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
On Thursday, August 27th, Maddy Walsh & The Blind Spots will perform at the CFCU Downtown Ithaca Summer Concert Series that is being broadcast online from the stage at the State Theatre of Ithaca.
About Maddy Walsh & The Blind Spots:
Maddy Walsh & The Blind Spots, a tenured, original, five-piece moxy rock band steered by magnetic songstress and force of nature Maddy Walsh, recently celebrated its ten-year “bandiversary” with a sold-out show at Ithaca, NY’s Hangar Theatre. The event was paired with the release of the band’s fourth studio album, Talk, which they have been actively touring the country in support of. The new album brings forth a wide range of emotions and a matured grasp of songwriting, paired, as always, with the band’s signature high-energy performances and incessant penchant for FUN.
The band is also is known for its sparkly aesthetic, from Walsh’s signature sequins and white go-go boots to the Blind Spots’ Thrift Shop (a big rack of wild re-purposed / secondhand clothing with the band’s logo printed on) to their collection of music videos created to accompany songs on all four albums. Their current equipment trailer, stenciled with human hearts, has a giant dent in the back with quite a story: …
MW&TBS has shared festival and event bills with the likes of Lake Street Dive, Silversun Pickups, Valerie June, Rubblebucket, Jukebox the Ghost, Amy Helm, Donna the Buffalo, Sharon Jones (rest her soul), The Punch Brothers, Steve Earle, Anders Osborne, Blues Traveler, Eddie Money, and Rusted Root, among others, and with the recent addition of two new, very talented musicians, they continue to show exponential growth, as they expand their touring radius, gaining new fans and momentum with each electrifying live performance.
