Life’s a Gas, Joey Ramone’s Birthday Bash, was one of the best shows New York has seen in years! Everyone was dressed for a party and in a very good mood. Little Steven was the MC, introducing some of Joey’s friends as speakers and the bands that played. There were also rare videos that were very funny and gave all a good laugh. My favorite part was when the stage was empty and with no video, just the music track of the Ramone’s song “I Wanna Be Sedated” playing, the audience sang the words. The night was a very nice tribute to a very nice guy.
