Mix of general admission seating and standing

Writer, actor, and standup comedian Joe DeRosa has become a favorite on the comedy circuit. His brand of comedy, which mixes brutal honesty and frustration at the workings of the world, has won over comedy fans, radio listeners, and TV audiences nationwide.
In 2009 and 2013 DeRosa taped two half hour specials for Comedy Central. Since 2010 he has released five comedy albums. His first two standup albums, The Depression Auction and Return of The Son of The Depression Auction, were released on Comedy Central records in 2010 and 2011, respectively. A third and fourth album, You Will Die and Mistakes Were Made: The B-Sides were released in 2013 and 2014. In 2016, Joe taped his first one hour special, which he also directed, again for Comedy Central, entitled You Let Me Down. The special and album debuted in February of 2017.
Joe has also worked as a writer on a variety of notable projects, including Netflix’s highly acclaimed Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp, Comedy Central’s Jeff & Some Aliens, and TBS’ cult hit The Pete Holmes Show, on which he was also a featured performer. Online, Joe created, wrote, directed and starred in Bedrocket’s 2013 web series We Should Break Up and the Warner Brothers web series What Are We Waiting For? In 2011 he directed and, along with fellow comedians Bill Burr and Robert Kelly, co-wrote and starred in the short film CHEAT, which premiered at The Tribeca Film Festival that year. In October 2012, Simon and Schuster released a book based on the film, written by the three comedians themselves.
In recent years, Joe has acted quite a bit, being seen as recurring crooked veterinarian Dr. Caldera on AMC’s Better Call Saul. He also has made appearances on Comedy Central’s Inside Amy Schumer, FX’s Louie,HBO’s Bored To Death, E’s Chelsea Lately, and in the video game Grand Theft Auto V.
When he’s not writing or acting, Joe headlines comedy clubs across the globe and has been featured at renowned festivals such as South By Southwest, Montreal’s Just for Laughs, Toronto’s JFL 42, The Moontower Comedy Festival, The New York Comedy Festival, The Edinburgh Fringe, The Galway and Dublin Vodaphone Festivals, Gilda’s Laughfest, the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Vince Vaughn’s Wild West Comedy Festival, and Bonnaroo.

What we love during our youth often loses its power as we age. It’s understandable and expected, especially if the thing you loved—making music—was also your job for a long time.

CJ Ramone made his name as a member of the greatest punk band of all time, and nearly 25 years after that experience, it’d be understandable if Ramonenow spent his days resting on his legacy and tsk-tsking the state of punk rock. But The Holy Spell…, Ramone’s new solo album out May 10 on Fat Wreck Chords, joyfully celebrates his undiminished love of music. It’s right there in the title.

“I never lost that magical feeling that you get from music, and that’s where the title came in,” he says. “The bands that I listened to when I was young that I really enjoyed, I can still put that music on now, and it still has the same magic for me.”

Full of fist-pumping punk—but not limited to it—The Holy Spell… pays tribute to that magic in a variety of ways. Notably, a pair of sly covers hearken back to Ramone’s childhood: He would hear Dave Edmunds’ “Crawling from the Wreckage” on the portable radio he played in bed at night, and Webb Pierce’s 1953 hit “There Stands the Glass” recalls his parents’ love for classic country.

Those songs get revitalized here, which is also how Ramone, guitarist Dan Root, multi-instrumentalist Nate Sander, and drummer Pete Sosa, sound on The Holy Spell… With producer Paul Miner (Death By Stereo, New Found Glory, H20, Adolescents) again at the helm, The Holy Spell… is a surprisingly nuanced release from a punk lifer.

The album’s first half, kicked off by “One High One Low,” continues the hook-laden pop punk that fans expect from the Ramone name. But check out the country-tinged “Hands of Mine” around the halfway point, the SoCal pop bubbling up through “Movin’ On” and “Postcard from Heaven,” and the feeling of closer “Rock On.” A farewell to Ramone’s longtime collaborator and friend Steve Soto of the Adolescents, it’s a fist-in-the-air tribute that says “rock on” without a trace of irony.

“Steve really has a lot to do with where I am now, and every record, Steve was right there with me,” Ramone says. “He is completely irreplaceable. I owe Steve a lot. It’s definitely strange going on without him, but even though he’s not on the record, a lot of what we learned from Steve is still on the record.”

The Holy Spell… is Ramone’s first album since 2017’s American Beauty, which PunkNews hailed for “keeping the Ramones sound fresh,” while AllMusic raved that Ramone is “not just copying the band’s old glories, but giving their legacy a fresh dose of energy and a different perspective.”
