Formed by Belinda Carlisle and Jane Wiedlin, The Go-Go’s started out in the 1980s LA punk scene. Talent, ambition, and the coinciding birth of MTV and the music video catapulted The Go-Go’s ascent. They made history as the first all-female band to write their own songs, play their own instruments, and release a No. 1 album. As the pressure of fame grew, hard drugs, alcohol, and infighting start to take its toll. Through a combination of candid interviews and great footage, Alison Ellwood’s spirited tribute shines a light on the band’s success – as musicians, ground-breakers and survivors.
