She's Got the Power: A Girl Group Extravaganza

Rock-n-roll's original bad girl Ronnie Specter rocked the house Saturday night with The Ronettes' classics "Walking in the Rain," "Be My Baby," and "The Best Part of Breaking Up"--and Amy Winehouse's "Back to Black."
That's Ronnie in red. Yep, that's Paul Shaffer on keyboards and Steven Van Sandt (wearing his trademark headscarf of course) far left on acoustic guitar.

She wasn’t the only girl-group diva bringing the crowd to their feet at Lincoln Center's She's Got the Power: A Girl Group Extravaganza. Lesley Gore, LaLa Brooks and their backup singers knocked it out of the ballpark with their performances of "Going to the Chapel," "And Then He Kissed Me," and many more chart-toppers from the 1960s.

Unfortunately, I didn't get a picture of Lesley Gore. Guess I was just too mesmerized by her performance of "You Don't Own Me" to get out my camera. Go here to see what I'm talking about!
