Marky Ramone Joins Arcade Fire in Brooklyn

On night one, Arcade Fire welcomed out New York Dolls frontman David Johansen to perform his version of the 1987 tune “Hot Hot Hot” under his Buster Poindexter alias. Last night as the run continued, the band welcomed out drummer Marky Ramone, the last surviving member of The Ramones’ classic lineup, to play drums on “I Don’t Wanna Go Down to the Basement” and “I Wanna Be Sedated.”

Prior to welcoming Ramone on stage, the bobblehead band sung along to the Talking Heads’ “Psycho Killer,” leading most in the audience to think they would be the special guest. From the stage, frontman Win Butler promised more surprises and guests as the band’s three-night run comes to a close tonight.

Also worth noting, actress Emma Stone was on stage as one of the bobbleheads as they danced around during points of the encore. Previous celebrities to take the stage as a bobblehead include Aaron Paul and Julian Casablancas, among others. Arcade Fire wraps up their Brooklyn run tonight.
