Monday, October 1, 2012


Marky Ramone Marky Ramone Marky Ramone Marky Ramone

A revved up Ramone: For 15 years, Marky Ramone was the drummer for The Ramones, though he continues to keep the group's iconic punk ethos alive on the road. In addition to the famous beat keeper (who also logged time in Dust and Richard Hell & The Voidoids), Marky Ramone's Blitzkrieg features vocalist Michale Gravers (formerly of The Misfits), not to mention an enormous cult following with an affinity for the original CBGB scene. Friday, October 5 at Arcada Theatre: www.oshows.com.

Go-Go's Go-Go's Go-Go's

Go-Go's still got the beat: Throughout the early 1980s, The Go-Go's were a revolutionary force on the pop/punk scene, cranking out attitude-filled hits like "Vacation," "Head Over Heels" and "We Got The Beat." Three decades later, the original five girls (Belinda Carlisle, Jane Wiedlin, Charlotte Caffey, Kathy Valentine and Gina Schock) are still grinding it out on the road, while simultaneously influencing a whole new generation of feisty female acts. Saturday, October 6 at Star Plaza Theatre: www.starplazatheatre.com and Sunday, October 7 at Arcada Theatre: www.oshows.com.

Joss Stone Joss Stone Joss Stone Joss Stone

Stone's soulful sequel: Last year Joss Stone's star rose to new heights when she teamed with Mick Jagger, Dave Stewart, A. R. Rahman and Damian Marley to form SuperHeavy. These days she's touring solo, potentially performing tunes from that project, alongside the brand new individual offering "The Soul Sessions Volume 2," which marks the covers-stacked sequel to her multi-platinum 2003 debut. Sunday, October 7 at The Vic Theatre: www.jamusa.com.
