If you give a damn about Joan Jett's 'Bad Reputation' documentary

The Joan Jett documentary "Bad Reputation" has a one-night screening tomorrow (Aug. 2) at Theatre 80 on St. Mark's Place.

The synopsis!

The life and career of rock ‘n’ roll icon Joan Jett from her early years ripping it up onstage as the founder and backbone of hard-rock legends The Runaways, to her long time collaboration with Kenny Laguna as Joan Jett & The Blackhearts, and her enduring presence in pop culture as a rock pioneer and mentor. With her inimitable singles “I Love Rock N’ Roll,” and “Bad Reputation” Joan Jett inspired a generation of young women to rock.

"Bad Reputation" premiered at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival... and the reviews have been mostly positive for its archival footage and commentary of assorted talking heads including Debbie Harry, Iggy Pop, Pete Townshend and Billie Joe Armstrong.

The trailer!

The film starts tomorrow night at 8 at Theatre 80, 80 St. Mark's Place west of First Avenue. Ticket info is at this link.
