Thanks to the guys and gals of Idol Records for inadvertently letting me know about this show. The Rowlett Exchange Club will be hosting Que Fest in early July. With a tagline, “It’s all about the kids,” the club celebrates 15 years of service with a three-day festival and concert. For their second day, they bring in Joan Jett and the Blackhearts on July 3.
One of our favorite butch woman rockers, Jett is having not too bad a year. The film “The Runaways” came out earlier this year depicting the story of her first band. To coincide with the film, she released a substantial greatest hits chronicling her time with The Runaways (albeit remade versions) up to her 2006 release, “Sinner.” And of course, it includes “I Love Rock ‘n’ Roll.”
