Go Ahead Punk – Make My Day

Dig out those shades, that black leather jacket and the jeans with the ripped knees, it’s time for some punk action from Marky Ramone, the ex drummer of New York rockers The Ramones.

Marky Ramone

Marky Ramone and Friends will be playing between Santa Cruz and La Laguna at the Plaza Tranvia, La Cuesta on Sat March 1. Tickets are 15 euros from El Corte Ingles and the Caja Canarias cashpoints. Marky is promising to do a full tribute to the great Ramones with classics like Sheena Is A Punk Rocker and Sedated.

More music coming up. Chuck Berry will be playing in Santa Cruz on Thurs. March 27 at the Santa Cruz sports hall, that’s the Pabellon Deportes not the basketball arena. The 81 year old legend will be travelling light and recruiting a band when he gets here – class eh.

Then on Sat. May 24, supergroup Asia will be playing the Santa Cruz Auditorium. Eric Clapton and Steve Winwood may not be with the group these days but drummer Carl Palmer is and it’s a home coming for him as he lived in La Orotava for a few years.

And finally, news is seeping through about Aquaviva 2008. it’s expected to be late June again and Keane definately wont be getting an invite after their late pull out last year. First name announced is French band, Blackstrobe, a complete mystery to me but at least it shows that they will be looking at getting an interesting mix again for the music.
