July 23. Darlene Love FREE at Lincoln Center
Head outdoors to Lincoln Center tonight for a fabulous celebration of Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, Darlene Love for her 75th birthday! Hers was the voice that helped launch a hundred hits during the glory days of the girl-group era, including the No. 1 “He’s a Rebel,” “(Today I Met) The Boy I’m Gonna Marry,” “He’s Sure the Boy I Love,” and “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home).” Recently, she has been on a creative hot streak, featured in the Oscar-winning documentary Twenty Feet from Stardom and releasing last year’s Introducing Darlene Love with songs written just for her by Bruce Springsteen, Elvis Costello, and other renowned songwriters. It will be a great night.
