LOOK: Pay Tribute To Johnny Ramone At The 9th Annual Johnny Ramone Tribute
By Staff on July 19, 2013
There’s no denying that we have some crazy LA pride here at FILTER. We love everything about our city – the music, the culture, the events, and the opportunity to mix all three! Which is why we’re super pumped for the 9th Annual Johnny Ramone Tribute.
This year’s event will be at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles (you may recognize the 8-foot tall Johnny Ramone Memorial Statue that’s there.) It’ll be a star-studded night of tribute, starting with a look-alike contest, where fans enter a look-alike contest judged by Johnny’s wife, Linda Ramone, by dressing up as any Ramones member to projections of The Ramones music videos and concerts. And as per tradition and in honor of Johnny Ramone’s love of cult films, they’ll be playing John Waters’ 1990 Cry-Baby from NBC Universal and Swank Motion Pictures, hosted by John Waters himself.
This is all happening August 18 at 6000 Santa Monica Boulevard. Tickets can be purchased right here or at the gate, and all proceeds and donations will go to the Johnny Ramone Research fund at USC Westside Prostate Cancer.
