I wore this to see Joan Jett Friday night. A few weeks ago I mentioned finding this little white eyelet tunic at a nearby garage sale for $1. I think everything else you’ve seen before, except maybe the black woven leather bag. It’s got a leather fringe tassle zipper pull, which I love. I thrifted it quite awhile ago but I don’t remember having included it in any outfit posts. Anyway, just a sweet little white dress toughened up for some rockin’ out ;)
So, we got to the fair with a little time before the concert. Clover being pretty excited about going on some rides, we headed straight for the kiddie section. I was glad I dressed for comfort, as I ended up having to accompany her on the rides, which involved me first squeezing myself into them, haha. She had a blast though, making any discomfort on my part well worth it :)
Alrighty folks, the verdict is in… at 52 years of age and having just traveled from Dublin, Ireland where she played a show the night before, Joan Jett can still rock the @#$% out! No JETT lag here people, harhar. She sounded awesome and her black lycra bodysuit made it quite clear that she's still rockin' a tight little bod to boot.
They kicked the show off with the early 80’s hit Bad Reputation followed by The Runaways’ Cherry Bomb… “Hello daddy, hello mom, I’m your ch.. ch.. ch.. ch.. ch.. ch.. ch.. ch… cherry bomb!” Yup, walked around with that stuck in my head all weekend.
There were a handful of songs from more recent albums that I wasn't so into, but they mostly stuck to the beloved hits of the 80’s and with the recent release of this film, there were plenty of Runaways songs too, including this one that I took video of when I made my way up toward the front for a few songs…
Haha, that was not me yelling, just so you know. Sorry about the sound quality, it got a bit loud for my little camera.
Aside from my brief foray to the crowded front, we hung out towards the back with our friends Ben and Julia. The nearly full moon overhead was pretty incredible. Clover even made some little friends to run around and rock out with, oh my gosh you guys, at one point she started nodding her head and shaking her little fist to the beat… I tell ya, my heart just about melted!
The highlight of the show though was definitely when they played I Love Rock ‘n Roll which sent the crowd into a tizzy, followed immediately by Crimson and Clover or “The Clover Song” as my little rocker calls it :D
We ended our evening with a stroll through the carnival area before there was no denying that a certain little party girl was up way past her bedtime.
Um, did I mention how amazing the moon was?! Yeah, overall a pretty fun night :D
