Dictators, Ronnie Spector Celebrate Joey Ramone

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.
