City Planner: Monday 10/23

Joan Jett @ First Avenue


today's A-List

: "Though it's true that she never really went anywhere, Joan Jett is back.


, the tough new studio disc she released earlier this year, kicks as hard as anything she did in her early-'80s heyday—maybe harder, if you don't have a terribly high opinion of George Bush or Donald Rumsfeld, both of whom she nails on "Riddles." Jett's live show remains sharp, too: Dangerously svelte in a leopard-print bikini top onstage at CBGB this past summer, she sent nostalgia trippers packing with a fresh guitar snarl and undimmed queer-core fury. Openers Eagles of Death Metal, a self-consciously sleazy groove-punk act featuring Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme on drums, love rock 'n' roll."

With Valient Thorr. 18+. $25. 7:00 p.m.
