The Runaways Movie

I'm looking forward to Floria Sigismondi's The Runaways, set at this juncture for a March 19, 2010 release.  All-girl rock band, 1970s, what's not to love?    

Got to see Joan Jett rock Charlotte, North Carolina, in the early 80s.  She was incredibly cool -- actually blew the Police off the stage, even though she opened for them. The difference between hard rock and slightly poncified elevator music, maybe. 

Today's Rune: Strength.

That would have been a hell of a show but a little after I stopped going to them.

Ah, Joan... *sigh* :)

They play a lot of Ms. Jett on Little Steven's Underground Garage-- it's given me a better appreciation of her and the Runaways. They've mentioned the movie a few times.
