Gabba Gabba Heys

As Joey once said, “Experiencing [The Ramones] is like having the fountain of youth.” But today, the closest we can get to such glorious rock experience is the Gabba Gabba Heys—a Ramones tribute band. Based in Los Angeles, the Gabba Gabba Heys have been belting out carefully-crafted slurred covers since 2000, and tonight they play an all-ages free show at the Slidebar in Fullerton. They've got the denim-and-leather look down pat, and some pretty decent wigs to boot (we think those are wigs, anyway). Come listen to “I Wanna Be Sedated” and “Blitzkrieg Bop,” and if you squint real hard, it might just take you back to a time when punk rock really meant something. It's not a sip from the musical fountain of youth—but you can get a cold beer. And that's not too bad.
