Donnas Make St. Patrick's Day Date With Joan Jett

Punk rock teen queens The Donnas are set to launch a tour with Lookout! Records labelmates The Smugglers, and they plan to hook up with Joan Jett for at least one stop on the way.

The Donnas and The Smugglers get things rolling on February 25 in the Smugglers' native Canada, and when the tour hits New York City on March 17, veteran rocker Jett will come on board for the night.

For The Donnas, the outing comes just as the group's new video, "Skintight," [RealVideo] is set to debut on MTV's "120 Minutes" in the coming weeks. For The Smugglers, the tour comes on the heels of this week's release of "Rosie," the band's latest Lookout! effort. Above and beyond simply sharing room on the Lookout! roster, The Donnas have actually inspired The Smugglers to song, as the Canadian punks have penned "Teen Mob" about the band.
