Joey in Punk Magazine's 'Mutant Monster Beach Party'
Joey Ramone

Once again, Joey Ramone's birthday will be celebrated with his Birthday Bash in NYC this year, but this time it's moved from its usual location of Bowery Electric to The Studio at Webster Hall. It takes place May 19, the day he would have turned 64.

This year's lineup features CJ Ramone, Joey's bandmate from 1989-1996 who recently released a pretty solid solo LP on Fat Wreck Chords. It's also got repeat offenders The Sic F*cks, as well as Barb Wire Dolls, The Independents, Stop, Jiro and The Serotones. Tickets are on sale now, and proceeds benefit the Joey Ramone Foundation for Lymphoma Research.

If you haven't yet, read our interview with Marky Ramone, whose autobiography is out now.
