The Go-Go's have rolled out a string of summer dates, taking in a total of 11 stops on both coasts. The band, featuring its classic lineup — Belinda Carlisle, Jane Wiedlin, Charlotte Caffey, Gina Schock, and Kathy Valentine — start and end the jaunt in Southern California — beginning on June 25th in San Diego, at Humphreys and wrapping on July 13th in Costa Mesa at Segerstrom Center for the Arts.
The group's eagerly-anticipated Alison Eastwood-directed documentary, titled The Go-Go’s, is set to premiere on Sunday (January 26th) at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, before airing on Showtime.
Guitarist Jane Wiedlin shed light on the magic component that's always made the Go-Go's stand apart from the pack: “I would say one thing about the Go-Go's songwriting is there's always two qualities going on at the same time. It's either, sort of, sunny music with dark lyrics or optimistic lyrics with slightly bitter sounding music. We always have those two things, and if one's missing it doesn't sound like the Go-Go's. So you notice it in more songs more than others but it's always been this weird little formula that we do naturally”
