Strokes Play Ramones Benefit

New York trendsetters The Strokes have signed up to perform at a tribute show to Joey Ramone at their home town’s Irving Plaza. The Joey Ramone Birthday Benefit was set up a month after he fell victim to cancer, after battling it for 7 years and this year it is held on May 19th, which would have been his 55th birthday.

The great news is that all proceeds to this tribute, which will also feature the Dead Boys and Cheetah Chrome, will go to the Lymphoma Research Foundation.
