Welcome to the show!

Welcome to the show!

  Since the Ramones figure into the Save the Village: The East Village tour, we thought it made sense to go see the exhibit at the Queens Museum about the real Fab Four, our favorite misfits from Forest Hills.

  Hard to fathom that tee shirts and records and posters we once threw out are now on the wall of a museum. But they are.

   And it is a terrific show. It is up until July 31.

   No Fred W. McDarrah photos, but some wonderful images by Bob Gruen and Roberta Bayley (who lives in Abbie Hoffman's old building on St. Mark's Place).

  Learn more about the Ramones and the East Village that embraced them on the East Village tour.

The Talking Heads opened for the Ramones when they played Bataclan, the Paris club that was attacked by terrorists last year.
