Jane’s Rock!

Janes Walk


Led By Thomas Devaney AND Jack Rabid

The world famous Jane’s Rock walk is back! Tom Devaney (MAS Senior Director of Land Use and Planning)  and Jack Rabid (publisher/editor of longtime rock zine The Big Takeover) will take you on a real live walk back in time to some of New York City’s and the country’s most esteemed former rock and punk rock venues. All located within close proximity in the East Village, Jane’s Rock will visit the former sites of Max’s Kansas City, The Palladium, The Electric Circus, The Fillmore East, Anderson Theater, CBGBs, and more! Tom will discuss the background and history of the locations. Jack will share anecdotal stories and experiences. Please join us for this super fun walk.

The entire route is about one-half mile. We'll start at 213 Park Ave South, between 17th and 18th Streets and walk south, finishing at 315 Bowery. The terrain is very flat---all sites except the former location of Max's Kansas City (213 Park Ave South), are in the East Village.
