Carrying the torch for the Ramones is a heavy burden for a bass player to carry–especially when it's not Dee Dee. But when we heard CJ Ramone–the band's last bassist before their retirement—would be stopping by the Galaxy Concert Theatre to thrash out the three-chord hits of punk's iconic grandfathers, we were bound to find some interest in this Santa Ana gig. It's also going to be a big night for our favorite cover band clown crew, Yeastie Boys, who are providing a three-ring circus of foul-mouthed punk support along with Mental Break Down, Darling Nikki and Obsequy.
For diehard Ramonanites, this looks like a $12 well spent, even if you arrive late to skip the melange of metal acts.
For the face painted fans that helped turn the Doll Hut into a cramped Anaheim sweat lodge during the Yeastie Boys' 1st Annual clown jam, we're sure you'll have a lot more moshing room. We're especially looking forward to seeing one of the Weekly's go-to photographers, John Gilhooley sing with the band on stage and maybe get a pie thrown in his face. We can't wait. The show starts at 8 p.m.
