MARKY RAMONE
8 p.m., Revolution. $12-$18.

Yes, OK, Marky Ramone was not the Ramones' original drummer, but it wasn't like he was at home ironing his hair, obsessively listening to “Leave Home” and waiting for the day. He was busy drumming for kickass first generation punk band Richard Hell and the Voidoids. When Tommy Ramone (RIP) got tired of touring, the remaining Ramones (RIP) asked Marky to come on board. Maybe he missed the band's fertile period, but he got to play on “Road to Ruin” and “End of the Century.” He appeared in “Rock 'n' Roll High School.” And even though he was replaced, briefly, by Richie Ramone (later replaced by Elvis Ramone), Marky was the longest-tenured Ramones drummer by more than a dozen years. Now the most prominent living connection to the first and arguably greatest punk band comes to Revolution, not with a band, but to DJ. Ramone hosts a show on Sirius called “Punk Rock Blitzkrieg,” so that's probably what you should expect. Two of Little Rock's best and most unpredictable DJs open. Ettiem usually mixes old and new school and Rod Bryan, who for years owned the record store Anthro-Pop, can never be pinned down.
