Between 1965 and 1981, the Park Avenue South venue Max’s Kansas City was a downtown institution, hosting artists ranging from the Velvet Underground and the New York Dolls to Ramones and Blondie. Tonight, a bevy of its regulars launch a four-concert reunion, headlined by transgender punk icon Jayne County. The ringleader for the event is Psychotic Frogs frontman Jimi LaLumia, and he’s brought in the Nihilistics, the Shirts, two bands with members of Johnny Thunders’ Heartbreakers, and more.
