When did you first hear The Donnas? Was it in their early, punkier days of albums like Get Skintight! or The Donnas Turn 21? Maybe it was in 2002, with breakthrough album Spend the Night that got the Palo Alto all-female rockers all kinds of mainstream attention. Maybe it was earlier this year, when New Kid In School (from their latest, 2007s Bitchin) appeared on Rock Band 2. Or maybe youll be hearing them for the first time Saturday at the House of Blues, where theyll be opening up for immortal glam metal troupe Ratt. Their songs are similarly sleazy sounding; its a small leap from Take It Off to Lovin Yous A Dirty Job.
