The Blind Spots return to Ithaca this summer following a national tour supporting their fourth studio album, "Talk." The tenured, five-piece moxy-rock band steered by the magnetic Maddy Walsh (think Heart, think Adele, Blondie, and Joan Jett all rolled into one) are sure to bring a high-energy performance to Cornell's Summer Event Series with original tunes and an incessant penchant for fun.
The Blind Spots have shared bills with Lake Street Dive, Silversun Pickups, Valerie June, Amy Helm, Rubblebucket, Donna the Buffalo, Sharon Jones, The Punch Brothers, and many others.
"Maddy Walsh, the lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist of the Ithaca, NY-based The Blind Spots, has a Janis Joplin-kind of charisma. Walsh holds her own in the rock music world." - Centre Daily Times
In case of thunderstorms or heavy rain, the concert will take place in the Rhodes-Rawlings Auditorium in Klarman Hall.
