Join Holly Stephey & Spencer Drate as we talk to Queens Museum guest curator Marc H. Miller , Monte Melnick (Ramones' tour manager) about the Ramones two-part exhibition celebrating the lasting influence of punk rock progenitors the Ramones.The exhibition's two parts will share many key objects drawn from more than 50 public and private collection across the world, each will explore the Ramones through a different lens: In 1976, the Ramones changed music forever with the release of their self-titled debut album. Their minimalist tunes, slapstick lyrics, buzzsaw guitars, and blitzkrieg tempo became the wellspring for a genre of music and a strain of culture.Timed to coincide with the 40th anniversary of that album’s release, Hey! Ho! Let's Go: Ramones and the Birth of Punk explores the lasting influence the punk rockers had on their hometown, from their start in Queens to their history-making performances at CBGB, highlighting their musical achievements, and placing a special influence on the dynamic synergy between New York City's music and visual arts scenes in the 1970s and 1980s.The Queens Museum in New York and GRAMMY Museum® in Los Angeles have announced they are partnering to present an unprecedented two-part exhibition celebrating the lasting influence of punk rock progenitors the Ramones.Hey!

THE CYNZ are a full-throttle rock band formed around the songwriting talents of CYNDI DAWSON (vocals) and HENRY SEIZ (guitar/vocals). The band has been called "the closest thing to the 1970's CBGB's you will get from a band that formed in 2011." Their songs are hard-rocking tales of pain, heartbreak, survival, determination, redemption, and unbridled joy, at break-neck speed!!!
Cyndi Dawson is a visual on-stage tsunami. She leads the band through shamanic rock & roll rites of passage. Her raw, emotional stage presence along with the band’s edgy, powerful vibe is truly an unforgettable experience.
Their influences derive from the late '70s Lower East Side NYC chainsaw music of the Ramones and the tough, gritty vibe of The MC5, Alice Cooper and Mitch Ryder & The Detroit Wheels. THE CYNZ have opened for legendary acts such as the newly-reformed Blues Magoos, The Split Squad, Martha Davis & The Motels, Ivan Julian, Sonny Vincent, The Vibrators, Billy Rath’s Street Pirates, Warrior Soul, Walter Lure & The Waldos, and The Zero’s.
THE CYNZ have two previous albums to their credit. The first, entitled “THE ORIGINAL CYNZ” and the second “FIVE MORTAL CYNZ” are guitar-driven, in-your-face dance fests. Their second CD contains a rocking track co-written with Gary Heffern, lead vocalist of the legendary San Diego-based band, The Penetrators entitled “Blame It On The Kiss” which is also their new video release directed by Kyle Schickner. Their third and newest CD, Superfan, available through Bongo Boy Records, contains tracks from the first two albums and five new tracks previously unreleased on CD. THE CYNZ have recently completed a tour of Sweden, and have released several singles produced by Peppy Castro of The Blues Magoos .
2015 — Tuesday Co-hosts Richard Narog and Hezi Aris open the "featured" BlogTalkRadio program "Westchester On the Level with Narog and Aris" this November 17, 2015th, and every Tuesday, at the top of the 10 o'clock hour EST. They engage in discussion, review, and analysis of issues specific to the City of Yonkers, as well as issues that sometime stray beyond the borders of the fourth largest city in the State of New York. This Tuesday will focus on election eScams. Hint: It has to do with the Yonkers Board Education, a department of the City of Yonkers rather than an issue about eMail scams. Tune in greater incite.
Musician John James attends the broadcast at 11am EST. John's earliest memories are of listening to jazz and bebop greats like Miles, Coltrane, Bird, Dizzy, Monk, Duke, Satchmo, and others, at the influence of his father, a jazz musician, composer, and horn player. By eight years old, John was playing sax (alto/baritone) in bands around the tri-state and NY metropolitan area. By age thirteen, he was playing guitar and drums on the NYC circuit, in famous rock clubs like CBGB's and The Continental. After being voted "most musically inclined" in high school, he went on to study music at a conservatory in Westchester, New York

As a youth in the 1980s, LeVine recognized the appeal of countercultural aesthetics including punk flyers, comics, graffiti and tattoos. Beginning in 1994, LeVine became an independent curator, organizing exhibitions at punk and alternative rock venues in the NY/NJ area such as: CBGB, Webster Hall, Max Fish, and Maxwell's. By promoting these visual art forms through group shows in venues that were home to their musical counterparts, LeVine gave a home to this nascent art movement, early on.
In February 2001, LeVine opened his own gallery Tin Man Alley in New Hope, Pennsylvania. The gallery relocated to Philadelphia in late 2002. In January 2005, LeVine renamed and moved his gallery to the epicenter of the contemporary art world, Manhattan's Chelsea district.
Jonathan Levine Gallery is committed to new and cutting edge art. Our roots go back to 1995, when Jonathan's life-long participation in punk and underground music grew into a curatorial experiment with the visual culture that surrounded him. We moved to Chelsea in 2005, with an eye towards honoring and connecting with the history and context of Post War art. In 2014, the gallery opened a second space on the ground floor of 557 West 23rd Street. We contribute to the dialogue by challenging the conventions of the canon — exploring the terrain of the high/low and everything in between. Our success in nurturing the careers of Shepard Fairey, Invader, Olek and others motivates us to continue being the voice for this cultural shift. The catalogues we publish, prints we distribute, and museum shows we help to produce reflect our dedication to our artists and community. At the same time, we aim to create an accessible and engaging gallery space. http://jonathanlevinegallery.com
