It is either disturbing or admirable that Tommy Ramone, former drummer of the legendary punk band and estimable producer (The Replacements' "Tim"), is heading to Club Passim with his - brace yourself - bluegrass duo.

It is called Uncle Monk.

"There is a similarity between punk and old-time music both are home-brewed as opposed to schooled," Tommy tells us in a press release announcing the April 6 gig. "Both have earthy energy. And there is a certain cool in old-time music that is found in the best alternative artists."
