Tommy Love is one of those classic, old-school, over-the-top rock ‘n’ roll frontmen. A ball of fire. A kinetic, non-stop bundle of energy.

He’s been that way for years, belting out the hits for a big bunch of bands from Classy Trash to the Buckadelics.

These days you can find him at the microphone for a pair of high-energy Nippertown rock bands – Blue Hand Luke (led by honkin’ sax man Luke McNamee) and Blue Machine (featuring members of Super 400).

Both of those bands – along with Super 400, garage rockers Johnny Mystery & the Mysteios and relative newcomers Saville Row – are banding together at Revolution Hall for a big benefit concert. Proceeds from the bash will go to help Tommy Love, who recently battled a life-threatening illness and was left facing an enormous mountain of medical bills. Like so many musicians, Love didn’t have medical insurance; he couldn’t afford it.

Admission is only $10.
