Jane Wiedlin is best known as the guitarist and songwriter for the Go-Go’s but her latest project is a band called Elettrodomestico that she formed with Pietro Straccia in Oakland, California.
We were delighted to have the duo as guests at a recent Blue Bear School of Music benefit show at the Haight Street Art Center where they treated us to four original tunes as well as a rousing version of the Go-Go’s classic “Our Lips Are Sealed.”
Jane talked about the legendary 80’s rockers upcoming tour and the musical “Head Over Heels” which features the Go-Go’s songs and is headed to Broadway this summer.
Jane Wiedlin (The Go-Go’s) & Pietro Straccia are psych-pop’s Elettrodomestico and they will be the featured guests on Renee & Irish Greg’s Pop Up on Thursday, May 17th, at the Haight Street Art Center in SF. The timing couldn’t be more perfect as HEAD OVER HEELS, the fearlessly fresh new musical comedy from music legends The Go-Go’s, will have just finished its run at the Curran Theatre. This will be a chance for you to enjoy an intimate evening of music and conversation surrounded by fantastic EMEK X Rock ‘n’ Roll inspired poster art in the gallery. Thanks to Blue Heron for providing the food, 21st Amendment Brewery along with Whetstone Wines will be free flowing, and we invite you to participate in an amazing silent auction featuring:
