Rockin' New Year's Eve - Page 3

Let 2013 all hang out at these musical blasts

Provocative cult fave El Elle joins classic local dirty dance producer Gold Chains at Night Light in Oakland

Holidays bring out the best tribute shows. And who doesn't wanna hear all the Ramones hits of yore played by a live band in a beachy dive bar? As that meme'd pie chart side-by-side of the things the Ramones want versus things the Misfits want, the Ramones were the biggest fist-pumpers. Ramones wanna 1. "Sniff Some Glue," 2. "Be Sedated," and 3. "Be Your Boyfriend" (the joke is that the Misfits only want "Your skulls"). All that punked-up energy makes for some killer classic possibilities. And since most of the Ramones are now dead and gone — RIP — your best bet for getting what you wanna get is the Remones, SF's party Ramones act since 2009. And don't worry, it's not just the sound; the band dresses the part in tight jeans, shaggy hair, and leather jackets. This is a free-for-all, no-cost Outer Sunset retreat back to the late '70s before we fast-forward to the future now. 9pm, free. Riptide, 3639 Taraval, SF.
