The Vaccines were watched by Blondie's Debbie Harry at their debut gig in New York last night (January 20),

The fast-rising London four-piece played their biggest headline show yet to a sold-out crowd at the Bowery Ballroom, playing new songs 'Wolf Pack', 'Under Your Thumb' and 'We're Happening' live for the first time.

They also covered Minor Threat's version of 'Sometimes Good Guys Don't Wear White' (originally recorded by The Standells). Watch video footage of the performance by scrolling down and clicking below.

After meeting Harry, frontman Justin Young told NME she was "one of our favourite musicians".

He added: "Playing our biggest show in the band's history so far in New York was surreal. And having one of the city's icons there only added to that!"

The band are set to release their debut album 'What Did You Expect From The Vaccines?' on March 21.

The Vaccines played:

'Wreckin' Bar (Ra Ra Ra)'
'We're Happening'
'Post Break-Up Sex'
'All In White'
'If You Wanna'
'Under Your Thumb'
'Blow It Up'
'Sometimes Good Guys Don't Wear White'
