At a Black Lips show in Conley, Georgia over the weekend, Deerhunter/Atlas Sound frontman Bradford Cox came to the stage dressed as another famously tall and gawky frontman, Joey Ramone. Cox, in a black wig and a black leather jacket, joined the Black Lips as they covered Bobby Freeman’s “Do You Wanna Dance” the exact same way that the Ramones covered it. And Cox’s Joey impression was pretty dead on, though that isn’t exactly the most difficult proposition; Joey always stood pretty still onstage. Watch a fan-captured video below.
This raises the question: Why don’t more people dress as the Ramones for Halloween? It should be pretty easy to put together a decent costume.
