Arrived at the venue Studio 24 in Calton Road, Edinburgh on a cold winter Sunday night just before 7 pm (when the doors were to open) and explained that I was here to see the Ramonas and that Cloey had put me on the guest list. I was told to come in and wait and a lady went and said to someone. A few minutes after that Cloey came out and I introduced myself to her and we were chatting for a few minutes then we went through into the venue where Cloey introduced me to Pee Pee, Margy and Ronny. What lovely girls and we talked for a long time I thoroughly enjoyed talking to the girls. They had played in Aberdeen the night before and were telling me how cold it was up there much colder than in Edinburgh and that they had been made welcome while they were touring up in Scotland which is very important.

Then at about 8 pm, the support band came on I thought they were good and everyone was listening to them, I met Trudi also who runs the Ramonas website and was chatting to her too. Thanks for your hospitality too girls. Then shortly afterwards the girls left to go and get ready for their show. Trudi and I were chatting. Then at about 9 pm the Ramonas came on stage. Absolutely brilliant. Here is the set list of the songs the girls sang and which Trudi gave me for writing my review.

Rockaway Beach

Blitzkrieg Bop
I Wanna Be Well

We're A Happy Family.

Everyone was having a good time and enjoying themselves I know I was. Certainly brought back some great memories of the Ramones shows I went to. You could tell the girls were having a lot of fun and they gave their all in their performance which is very important I think. Come back soon girls and I would highly recommend anyone who has not seen the Ramonas to go to a show.

100 was also raised for Cancer Research that is brilliant! This is 191.44 converted into American dollars.

Special thanks to Cloey, Margy, Pee Pee and Ronny and special thanks also to Trudi.
Hey Ho Let's Go!
