Ex-Ramones singer Joey Ramone will celebrate his 48th
birthday with a punk-rock party at New York's Coney Island High on
Wednesday (June 16). Among the guests performing at the annual event for
the three-chord godfather are punk peers the Dictators and
girl-group legend Ronnie Spector, who will play with female
punk band Hissy Fit. Also on the bill are New York sleaze-rockers
the Toilet Boys, ska punks the Independents,
metal-pop rockers Cyclefly and "a bunch of special guests," according to Ramone.
