If you like a little rock in your music, you probably have heard of The Go-Gos and maybe even The Runaways, both all-women groups. But how about Fanny?

Fanny broke ground for the women rockers who followed, playing their own instruments and rocking hard, but by the mid-70s, they were gone.

Fanny's original members reassembled a few years ago and the film Fanny: The Right to Rock tells their story. It screens this week (Thursday) during the Ashland Independent Film Festival's outdoor run. Before the film Brie and David Darling will perform.

Richard Herskowitz of AIFF returns, along with film director Bobby Jo Hart.
