Flier of the Week: Bad Reputation

Wanna see a badass show? Well you got it.

In fact, the upcoming Monsters of Mock gig will be jam packed with 80s tribute band greatness.

Bad Reputation, a local Joan Jett Tribute Band, is headlining. Joining Bad Reputation are the Ultimate Van Halen Tribute and 33.

Erin Morley, Bad Reputation's drummer, is all about spreading Joan Jett's passion for rock and roll.

"We started doing the Joan Jett thing because [Joan's] really been in the spotlight the past year, with the movie The Runaways and many of her songs being featured in movies and [on] TV," Morley said. "The Valley has some fantastic tribute bands right now, and we saw a perfect opportunity to showcase a great talent like Joan Jett. Our vocalist [Anita Bulger] really has the look and the voice, and the rest of the band plays the music note for note."

Morley also suggested that fans of Van Halen and David Lee Roth better not be thinking about skipping Ultimate Van Halen Tribute's set. "They are all amazing musicians," he said.

Get your tribute on at 7 p.m on January 15 at 910 Live. It's a 21-and-over show, and tickets are $10. More information can be found here.
