(EP 3, no.7) Ramones w/The Demics: Here Today, Gone Tomorrow, Centennial Hall, London, Ontario, Canada, Tuesday May 20, 1980

My Life in Concert.com

After kickstarting punk rock in NYC in the mid-70s, the Ramones finally made it to London, Ontario, along with London’s own local-punk-scene launchers: The Demics.

The gig marked a moment when the Ramones were to ascend to North American commercial success with the Phil Spector-produced “End of the Century” while London’s Demics were on the verge of breaking nationally.

And then?

Join me and former London, Ontario resident “Special Guests” from Leeds, UK on a journey back to one of the most exciting shows I ever saw in my hometown, as well as looking at the Ramones’ history and how each of us learned about them.  

From Forest Hills to the Forest City: Here Today, Gone Tomorrow.
