Mickey Leigh has Frankensteined together a 14th annual Joey Ramone Birthday Bash for his late punk-icon brother, who would have turned 63 today. The house band for this tribute benefiting the Joey Ramone Foundation for Lymphoma Research consists of Cheetah Chrome (Dead Boys), Glen Matlock (Sex Pistols), George Tabb (Iron Prostate), members of the Sic F*cks, and Leigh (Birdland, the Rattlers). Three decades after its heyday, the Ramones’ loud, fast, droll style furnishes a timeless corrective to rock ostentation. Tonight, the Bullys, the A-Bones, the Independents, Heap, the Gobshites, and Andy Shernoff (Dictators) are among the teachers offering a refresher course in the art of brutal concision.
