When someone at the Queens Museum asks if you’d like to attend the friends and family party for the Ramones exhibit opening this Sunday, there’s only one thing to say: “Hey! Ho! Let’s Go!” And those words (also the name of the sprawling exhibit) are exactly that greeted me as I entered the museum and saw this massive painting created by Japanese artist Yoshitomo Nara.

It’s the final countdown.

Update your calendars if you’re planning to raid Trash & Vaudeville’s St. Marks Place location one last time before it leaves its home of over 40 years. The closing date has been moved up to this Sunday.

With a “Hey Ho Lets Go,” the store announced last week that its last day before relocating would be Monday, Feb. 29, but we’re now told that’s been changed to Feb. 28. The reopening at 96 East 7th Street, near First Avenue, is still slated for early March.

“I know a lot of you complain about new groups coming in and replacing you,” Ada Calhoun told the crowd of East Villagers and ex-Villagers gathered in Cooper Union’s Great Hall last night. “If you’re not a Lenape Indian, I just don’t have a lot of compassion.”

Behind her was a photo of the area in all of its bucolic splendor, 400 years ago – way before the Pinkberrys and the Red Mangos inspired the tongue-in-cheek title of her new hyperlocal history, St. Marks Is Dead: The Many Lives of America’s Hippest Street.

Throughout the frightening explosion and subsequent collapse of three buildings on Second Avenue Thursday, several local businesses remained open, serving first responders and rattled community members in need of a place to commune and refuel. On the corner of Ninth Street and Second Avenue, 24-hour restaurant Veselka never stopped serving its famous Ukrainian comfort food, and Dallas BBQ, just down the street on the corner of Saint Marks Place and Second Avenue, closed shortly after the fire broke out Thursday but reopened today at noon.

“We wore ’50s clothes, we loved ’50s music, we wanted ’50s amps — if it had been possible, we would have been in black and white.” That’s how Dig Wayne, lead singer of the great rockabilly band Buzz and the Flyers, recalled the band’s obsession with all things midcentury. “We even wanted to have one of those great big old microphones ’cause they looked so cool, but they sounded awful. So we got an old one and rewired it so the guts inside were new and the outside was old and fantastic.”
