Blondie, MC5, Replacements, Heartbreakers supergroup playing Stephen Saban benefit
The Heartbreakers

A rock supergroup featuring members from Blondie, MC5, The Replacements, and The Heartbreakers will perform the legendary Heartbreakers album L.A.M.F. in New York City on November 15. The Heartbreakers’ only album, L.A.M.F — which was recorded in 1977 — established the band as godfathers of punk rock. They had previously played alongside The Clash, Buzzcocks, and The Sex Pistols on their Anarchy in the U.K. tour.

The performance is a benefit to help pay medical bills for New York scenester and journalist Stephen Saban, who wrote for Details Magazine in the 1980s. Saban raised the profiles of countless musicians and artists, spotlighting some of the era’s greatest stars as he chronicled the New York party scene. Saban later moved to Los Angeles, where he worked for World of Wonder Productions (creator of hits like RuPaul’s Drag Race and Million Dollar Listing). Last year, Saban was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and underwent complex surgery.

The show will also feature appearances by Lenny Kaye, Bush Tetras, Marilyn, and others. It starts at 8 PM in the Marlin Room at Webster Hall. The event is 18 and up. Tickets are $30.
