Johnny Ramone Tribute To Be Hosted By John Waters

The Ninth Annual Johnny Ramone Tribute will take place on Sunday, August 18 at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery, where the 8-foot-tall bronze statue of the punk rock icon was constructed shortly following the guitarist's death of prostrate cancer in 2004.

In tribute to Ramone's deep affection for cult movies, director John Waters will host the evening with a screening of his 1990 classic "Cry-Baby." The movie, several music videos and live footage of The Ramones will be projected on a 42-foot masoleum wall in the cemetary. In past years the event has screened classic cult flicks like "Freaks" and "night of the Living Dead 3D." 

Traci Lords, who both starred in "Cry-Baby" and was featured on The Ramones' 1994 album "Acid Eaters" will also make an appearance at the event. 

Yet another tradition of the yearly late-summer event, an army of leather jackets and destroyed denim will invade the Hollywood Forever Cemetary in anticipation for a look alike contest, judged by Johnny's wife (and Joey's longtime girlfriend) Linda. 

Admission is $10, and all net proceeds will go to Johnny Ramone Research Fund at the USC Westside Prostate Cancer Center.  (via)
