There’s a key moment early in “The Go-Go’s” when baby-faced L.A. punks Jane Wiedlin and Belinda Carlisle take a road trip to San Francisco to see the Sex Pistols. Everyone in their scene did, because the tour was a big deal in the punk-rock world. When the Pistols finally took the stage, they sucked as usual, flaunting their shitty performance as deliberate. It was a wakeup call for Wiedlin and Carlisle, who decided they could form an all-girl group and at least be better than that.
