Finding new bands that I enjoy seems like an almost daily occurrence, and from time to time I find a band that just seems to get music and they do what they want. Any entertainer whether it be a comedian, an actor, or a musician needs fans and at times keeping those fans is not very easy. One hit wonders abound, from all eras and types of music, so a good band finds their comfort zone and if so they don't become the next one hit wonder. In my quest for musical nirvana (not the band, don't get me started about that band), I found a band that gets it.

Its been a fairly interesting, starting in September through today, I have been at a very eclectic series of shows. Its been interesting to think how I have, in many instances, revisited some of my youth. Having an exceptionally varied musical palate, it shouldn't be a surprise but the lineups of shows is even a bit of a head scratcher for me.
The Ramones. That name in synonymous with the genre of Punk Rock, and the influence that they have given to the music world is unsurpassed through their sound, lyrics, stage presence and characters. Four young men from NYC, started a revolution that has transformed music from the earliest moments of their creation.

A typical Saturday night rarely starts raging to the sounds of Rick Springfield but I think Saturday 09 April 11 is the closest I think it can really come. It became obvious whilst waiting in line for the show to begin, as it began to filter though those hanging about that some of us were there almost TWELVE hours early.
