Still high-kickin' in her "Boots of Chinese Plastic" as she approaches 60 years old, Chrissie Hynde and her hired guns known as the Pretenders - including Plexiglas-shielded original drummer Martin Chambers - thrilled a sold-out House of Blues crowd Saturday night with a wide-ranging set that encompassed the familiar ("Don't Get Me Wrong," "Stop Your Sobbing"), obscure ("Tequila," "Thumbelina"), new ("Love's a Mystery," "Don't Cut Your Hair," both from last year's Break Up the Concrete) and old ("Kid," "Back on the Chain Gang").
The band was in the house like a pigeon from hell, all right, and Daniel Kramer was in the front row. Click here for a slideshow.
