I'm spinning another Thursday night of raucous rock at Manitoba's this week for the latest installment of my little rock party Neat Neat Neat. Playing the East Village's definitive punk shack is always exciting, but this week it's a little more so. See, this week I'll be musically honoring the memories of Joey and Dee Dee and Johnny Ramone on the night leading into what would have been Joey's 55th birthday.
I'll be playing your Ramones requests all night along with fan faves, rarities, original versions of songs they covered, kindred spirits, and other hot and heavy hits from the rock, punk, indie, and oldies spectrums (spectra?). If you've been to Manitoba's before, you know it has more NYC punk cred than just about any other bar in the city, with all due respect to the once-mighty CBGB. If you have never been there, come for the music and stay for the intimate environs, the classic punk photography and memorabilia, and the $3 cans of Pabst. We accept you.
