It was 1983 when Pat Benatar proclaimed that we stand together, heartache to heartache. There is no part of "Love Is a Battlefield," from the heavy electronic drumbeats to Benatar's defiant singing, that is not pop gold. The same can be said for much of the original heartbreaker's catalog, which you'll be able to hear reproduced live on Wednesday at the Starlight Theatre.
Bonus: Benatar's guitar-god husband, Neil Giraldo, is along for the ride, and former Zoot member and "Jessie's Girl" singer Rick Springfield is also on deck. If you were a teenager in the 1980s, this night is your night.
