I swung by the record store on my break yesterday to pick up tickets to see Ronnie Spector. She’s performing next Saturday at the Girls Got Rhythm Fest, an extremely awesome female-powered rock ‘n’ roll weekend and the brainchild of my super cool pal Dana. I AM SO DARN EXCITED. I’ve listened to “Be My Baby” probably 6,000 times in my short little lifetime, but to hear Ronnie sing it in person is an experience I cannot possibly miss. With the show being almost around the corner, I’d figured I’d share a few fabulous images of Ms. Spector and The Ronettes from back in the day.
The icing on the cake is that Ronnie’s just one of MANY fabulous artists performing at the festival—check the lineup if you don’t believe me! If you’re in the Twin Cities area, and you like rock ‘n’ rollin’ lady bands, I’d really recommend you be there. Tickets for the entire weekend (as well as single night passes), are available at Treehouse Records, Eclipse Records or online right here. Wouldn’t tickets to see Ronnie make for a great early Mother’s Day present? Talk about an awesome mother-daughter date!
