Give Some Love to Love
Several rock options tonight, there's Beck at the Wiltern, Cat Power at the John Anson Ford, Pink at the Avalon,
Mark Knofler and Emmylou Harris at the Gibson Amphitheater, Hawksley Workman at the Viper... or across the street at the Whisky they're throwing a benefit for Arthur Lee, the frontman of the classic 60s group Love.
Lee had been touring the world as Love, with the more-than-capable local boys Baby Lemonade as his band. With a trying past, which included run-ins with the law -- including a visit to the pokey -- the rock legend now finds himself battling leukemia.
Last week NY threw a benefit for Arthur that included sets from Robert Plant, Ian Hunter, Ryan Adams, Nils Lofgren, Yo La Tengo, and others, at the Beacon.
Tonight expect performances by the original lead guitarist of Love, Johnny Echols, who will be joined by other former members Robert Rozelle, Melvan Whittington and Baby Lemonade, as well as a performance by Vince Flaherty & The Invincebles.
