CJ Ramone 

When: Tue., Aug. 2 2011

It's hard not to be skeptical about a show fronted by the bassist who stepped in to replace Dee Dee during the Ramones' final years. But in the case of C.J. Ramone's show at Kim's Pixie Inn (440 S. Santa Fe Ave., Pueblo, 719/542-8370, $17, all ages, doors open at 6), there's more cause to be optimistic than first meets the eye. Although the youngest Ramone was only onboard for the veteran punk band's final seven years, he sang his fair share of vocals and appeared on four studio albums as well as two live collections. Equally important is the fact that Daniel Rey, the producer and musician frequently referred to as the "fifth Ramone," has been touring as C.J.'s guitarist, which increases the likelihood that dozens of Ramones classics will be delivered with more authenticity than we have any right to expect. Here's hoping. — Bill Forman
