2016 Joey Ramone Birthday Bash

The 2016 Joey Ramone Birthday Bash is going to be a very special event, indeed! Not only is it the annual affirmation that Joey's spirit will forever live on, but this year it's also the 40th Anniversary celebration of the album that changed Musical History -- arguably the birth cries of Punk itself -- The Ramones' eponymous debut album!

The Bash will be held on Thursday, May 19, 2016 at 7pm (doors at 6) at The Studio @ Webster Hall. Tickets are $30, and it's an age 16 and over show only.

The Crowgrrl would personally like to thank Joey's brother, Mickey Leigh, for organizing sch a fabulous event and keeping Joey's memory very much alive! Kudos, Mickey! You Rock!

If I could make one suggestion -- would it be possible to have the show filmed for those of us who geographically can't make it to the actual event? The sales from such a DVD would raise even more for the Joey Ramone Foundation for Lymphoma Research!

Without further ado, here's more information on the actual (sure to be amazing) show:
