Marc's Great American Rib Cook-Off & Music Festival: Joan Jett and the Blackhearts 

When: Sat., May 24, 12 p.m. 2014
Former Rolling Stone editor and renowned rock writer Dave Marsh once described singer Joan Jett as “the female Chuck Berry.” It’s an apt description. Jett’s career began with the punk-y all-girl rock combo the Runaways, and she capitalized on that experience with her 1981 solo album, Bad Reputation, which delivered radio hits such as “I Love Rock ’n’ Roll” and “Crimson and Clover,” a cover of the Tommy James tune. Her first studio album in seven years, last year’s Unvarnished features a number of arena-ready rock tunes, including the catchy “Any Weather (606 Version)” and the snappy “TMI,” a critique of our social media-obsessed culture.
