She's Still Making It After All

I was able to push up close to the stage, and when she threw a pick into the audience, it landed on and then bounced off my head.

I don't get to big-name concerts much (still on the to-do list: see Prince, Madonna, and Tina Turner). But when Joan Jett came to "Webster Hall":http://www.websterhall.com/, I jumped at the chance. I'd loved her when I was in grade school and had rediscovered the joys of her music as an adult when she did a "cover":http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xgMbxZwxFeU of the "theme song":http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zCL3B5LgUCo to _The Mary Tyler Moore Show_ a few years ago.

I was able to push up close to the stage, and when she threw a pick into the audience, it landed on and then bounced off my head. I was too slow to grab it before another rabid fan beat me to the punch. So I left with my sweat-soaked memories. But Joan Jett and I will still have rock and roll.
