Head of the Lakes Fair Demolition Derby 2017

Joan Jett and the Blackhearts at Head of the Lakes Fair 1987

With the Head of the Lakes Fair underway this week in Superior, it’s fitting to take a look back 30 years ago when Joan Jett and Blackhearts graced the fairgrounds stage. Fortunately, a bootleg recording exists of the Aug. 15, 1987 show.

Yeah! Demolition Derby! Yeah!

Thank you, Head of the Lakes Fair.

I think the announcer said a guy named Matt from Superior was the winner.  Really, in a smash-up derby, everyone wins.
