Joan Jett Day in Hollywood

Andrew Vaughan
Joan Jett

Joan Jett has been selected as the festival honoree at this year’s Sunset Strip Music Festival (SSMF) that takes place in Los Angeles August 1-3.
Jett will be celebrated at an exclusive VIP event Thursday, August 1 at the House of Blues Sunset, kicking off the three-day music festival. There she will be presented with the coveted “Elmer Valentine Award” and, immediately following the tribute ceremony, lucky attendees will enjoy a full live performance by Joan Jett & the Blackhearts. And the City of West Hollywood will honor Jett by officially proclaiming Thursday, August 1 “Joan Jett Day.”
 “I actually lived on the Strip, right across the street from The Whisky,” said Joan Jett.  “The Sunset Strip is a piece of rock ‘n roll history.  I never thought all of those insane times would turn into an award, but I’m very honored, and inspired to keep making music.”
The sixth annual three-day music festival officially gets underway with the 2013 honoree award presentation and tribute event on Thursday at the House of Blues Sunset, followed up with special high-profile shows in the world famous music venues on The Sunset Strip Thursday and Friday nights, and culminates on Saturday, August 3 with a 3-11 PM street festival.
Tickets for the SSMF 2013 street festival are on sale now.
