Thursday: "Rock 'n' Roll High School"

May 19

The first time I went to Celebrated Summer was yeah, about a decade ago, not long after it opened when it was in the back of Legends, a comic book/role-playing game store in Towson. The whole set-up was weird and cool and didn't make sense, in a good way, what with the space mixing vinyl dweebs, punk kids, and D&Ders. Not to mention the store was named after the saddest, bittersweet-est hardcore song of all, Hüsker Dü's 'Celebrated Summer.' On that first visit, I bought a copy of Grandmaster Caz's "You Need Stitches: The Tuff City Sessions 1982-1988" for a super reasonable price of like six bucks. Eventually, Celebrated Summer outgrew the space and moved next to Atomic Books, which just feels like a harder, stronger, better version of the Legends/CS shared space dealie. To celebrate 10 years of Celebrated Summer, come to the Charles for a CS-hosted screening of the punk classic, "Rock 'n' Roll High School" starring the Ramones. 9 p.m., the Charles Theater, 1711 N Charles St., (410) 727-3464,, $9.50.
