We’re Doing It For Love: with Robert Plant, David Johansen, Ian Hunter Band, Johnny Echols, Nils Lofgren, Garland Jeffreys, Yo La Tengo, Flashy Python and the Body Snatchers – Beacon Theater $53.50 - $128

This is a benefit for Love’s hard luck leader, a man whose given us all a truckload of amazing music, the legendary Arthur Lee. This time his battle isn’t legal but with leukemia – and without the aid of health insurance. Friends coming to his rescue tonight include Robert Plant, David Johansen, Ian Hunter Band, Love’s guitarist Johnny Echols, Nils Lofgren, Garland Jeffereys, Yo LaTengo, and “an indie rock supergroup” led by Clap Your Hands and Say Yeah vocalist Alec Ounsworth. A good bill at fine venue for a god cause…
