The newly-launched Marky Ramone's Blitzkrieg will descend upon New York at Irving Plaza this Saturday night. The touring group, which will play a set of Ramones favorites, features party animal rocker Andrew WK in the frontman position along with Marky on drums. The show will be sort of a homecoming for the crew, since the Ramones famously launched their career at the legendary but now-defunct CBGB's, and Andrew WK famously loves New York City (there was a song called simply "I Love New York City" on his debut).
Marky Ramone made a pre-tour appearance, drumming for the Offspring at Rock in Rio on September 18, and Andrew WK just spent a summer on tour with Black Sabbath, where he played a special DJ set.
