Members of punk legacy acts Blondie, MC5, the Replacements, and the Heartbreakers have assembled to form a supergroup for one night only. Clem Burke (Blondie), Walter Lure (The Heartbreakers), Tommy Stinson (The Replacements), and Wayne Kramer (MC5) are coming together to honor writer and early punk purveyor Stephen Saban, who was diagnosed with cancer last year at the age of 69. The benefit concert will feature the supergroup performing the Heartbreakers’ lone studio album, 1977’s L.A.M.F., in its entirety along with guests Lenny Kaye, Bush Tetras, and Mudd Club’s Marilyn.
It all goes down in The Marlin Room at Webster Hall in NYC on 11/15. Tickets can be purchased here for $50. All proceeds will go to Saban’s treatment.
