(Gibson) Joan Jett has been selected as the festival honoree at this year's Sunset Strip Music Festival (SSMF) that takes place in Los Angeles August 1-3 and the City of West Hollywood will honor Jett by officially proclaiming Thursday, August 1 "Joan Jett Day."

Jett will be celebrated at an exclusive VIP event Thursday, August 1 at the House of Blues Sunset, kicking off the three-day music festival. There she will be presented with the coveted "Elmer Valentine Award" and, immediately following the tribute ceremony, lucky attendees will enjoy a full live performance by Joan Jett & the Blackhearts.

"I actually lived on the Strip, right across the street from The Whisky," said Joan Jett. "The Sunset Strip is a piece of rock 'n roll history. I never thought all of those insane times would turn into an award, but I'm very honored, and inspired to keep making music."

The sixth annual three-day music festival officially gets underway with the 2013 honoree award presentation and tribute event on Thursday at the House of Blues Sunset, followed up with special high-profile shows in the world famous music venues on The Sunset Strip Thursday and Friday nights, and culminates on Saturday, August 3 with a 3-11 PM street festival. more on this story
