Cherie Currie and Brie Darling are two bad asses who broke down all manner of boundaries when they were only teenagers — Darling with the early ’70s rock band Fanny and Currie with mid- to-late-’70s punks The Runaways. Fast forward 40 years, and they’re working together. The duo have put out their debut album The Motivator (named after the T-Rex song which is covered on the record) and, following a low-key performance at the Grammy Museum at the beginning of August, they’re now on a full tour that hits the Whisky this week. Expect plenty of Runaways and Fanny classics alongside tunes from the new album.

Cherie Currie & Brie Darling play with The Swansons, Kaz Bielinski and (Stereo Love) at 7 p.m. on Thursday, December 5 at the Whisky A Go Go.
