Hudson Happening Honors New York Punk History

Posted By on Thu, Nov 21, 2013 at 9:00 AM


My first book, If You Like the Ramones, was recently published by Backbeat Books. To help promote it, I'm doing a few author events and readings in the region. One of these happenings—which I'm calling "I (Heart) NYC Punk!!"—takes place tomorrow night and finds me honored to be sharing the bill with Andy Shernoff of legendary band the Dictators. This night of songs, stories, and rare vintage video will go down at the Spotty Dog Books & Ale in Hudson.

Shernoff, who in addition to being a founding member and the chief songwriter of the Dictators worked as a musician and songwriter with the Ramones and Joey Ramone, will perform solo acoustic versions of new songs and Dictators classics interspersed with anecdotes and commentary. I'll be reading from If You Like the Ramones and signing copies of the book, which is a fun-filled guide to "Over 200 Bands, CDs, Films, and Other Oddities You Will Love" if you are a new or long-time fan of the famed Forest Hills foursome. And as if that ain't enough, attendees will also be treated to rare live video footage of the Ramones and other vanguard New York punk acts courtesy of Bedazzled Video.

To get you fired up, here's a vintage peak at Shernoff (on acoustic guitar) with Joey Ramone and others at CBGB Gallery:

"I (Heart) NYC Punk!!" will take place at the Spotty Dog Books & Ale in Hudson on November 22 at 8pm. Admission is $5. For more information, call (518) 671-6006 or visit or
