Jane’s Rock!

Janes Walk


Led By Thomas Devaney AND Jack Rabid

The world-famous Jane’s Rock returns for a sixth year! Please join MAS’ Tom Devaney and rock zine The Big Takeover’s editor-in-chief Jack Rabid on this entertaining exploration of the Lower East Side’s rock and punk rock past. The walk visits the sites of some of New York’s most iconic and historic music venues including Max’s Kansas City, The Fillmore East, The Palladium, The Electric Circus, and CBGBs. Tom and Jack provide lively descriptions covering the history of the buildings—many started out as vaudeville theaters and social clubs for new immigrants—to when they were at the forefront during their music heyday.


The walk is just a little over one half mile starting at Park Ave South and ending at the Bowery.
