2019 Johnny Ramone Tribute at Hollywood Forever

Hey ho, let's go to the Johnny Ramone Tribute at Hollywood Forever on Sunday, August 11th! Curated by Vincent Gallo, this year's event features a screening of the 1979 cult classic The Warriors in celebration of its 40th anniversary, along with an exclusive one-night only exhibit of punk rock and glam rock photography from Jenny Lens, Danny Fields and more in the Cathedral mausoleum. Enjoy a discussion with The Warriors director Walter Hill and star Michael Beck “Swan.” Plus, there will be a food tent, pop-up shops, and an Amoeba Music tent. We'll be there with Warriors and Ramones merch and collectibles for sale, Amoeba swag and other goodies. Stop by before the movie and say hi!

Fans young and old have gathered around the Johnny Ramone memorial statue at Hollywood Forever cemetery to celebrate the legendary rocker's memory since his death in 2004. When you visit the 8-foot-tall bronze statue, be sure to look on its base for inscriptions by Eddie Vedder, John Frusciante, Rob Zombie, Lisa Marie-Presley and others. The annual tribute event is presented by Linda Ramone and all proceeds go to prostate cancer research by Dr. David Agus.
