Good Cause+ Good Music+ Good Movies=Good Time

So, like most people with good ears i'm a huge Ramones fan and this Friday at the Hollywood Forever cemetary they are paying tribute to Johnny Ramone who succumbed to prostate cancer in 2004.The nice people at Hollywood Forever put on a lot of really great events that no Angelino should miss. Every weekend they play classic movies and they have the best Dia de los Muertos celebration in Los Angeles. This event will be attended by the remaining Ramones,(Tommy, Marky, and CJ), and lots of Ramones memorabilia.A live concert will be shown as well as the 1932 cult classic "Freaks." For those of you who don't know, The Ramones got their infectious "Gabba gabba hey " chant from this film, which featured actual sideshow performers. If you haven't seen this movie I highly suggest you do, it is quite possibly one of the strangest movies of all time! Picnic dinners and drinks are allowed so feel free to come and get cozy(a little tip, they really frown on chairs with high backs here).Tickets are a suggested $10 minimun donation to Johnny's Prostate Cancer Research Charity at Cedars Sinai Medical Center. This event really looks to be a fun time, and if you do go, don't forget to say hi to Dee Dee, he's actually buried there. Information for this event is available at http://www.johnnyramone.com/ .
