A birthday tribute to Joey Ramone!

About this Event

The Spoook organization presents an evening of Ramones covers. Featuring We Are Scientists, Creeper, The Futureheads, Kathryn Williams, SLUG and many more still to be confirmed. Literally, this card is subject to change!

Tickets are available on a ‘pay what you can’ basis, because the Ramones belong to everyone!

Born May 19th, 1951 in Queens, New York, US of A, if lymphoma hadn’t taken him from the world on April 15th, 2001, this year Jeffrey Ross Hyman – Joey Ramone – would be turning 70-years-old.

To celebrate this greatest of men – and to raise money for lymphoma and Obsessive Compulsive Disorderresearch, two illnesses that impacted Joey’s life in the most significant of ways – this event will see many of Joey’s greatest compositions performed by many of today’s greatest bands.

Proceeds from this event – and from sales of limited edition art prints – will be donated to OCD and lymphoma research charities. Here’s a beautiful print you can buy, made by the brilliant Drew Millward.

The first two Ramones albums will be subject to one of Tim Burgess’ outstanding Tim’s Twitter Listening Partiesat 6pm the same day.

What are you waiting for?

Hey ho! Let’s go (get a ticket today!)
