Honoring Linda Stein

From Page Six:

When Mandy Stein debuts her movie, "Burning Down the House: The Rise and Fall of CBGB," tonight, she won't just be honoring the now shuttered club's most famous band, the Ramones, but her late mother, Linda Stein, as well. Linda was the band's manager and a punk rock scenester before she became uptown's real estate broker to the stars. She would have celebrated her 64th birthday today, had she not been tragically murdered in 2007. "The film is dedicated to Linda, who would lead the celebration of her daughter's film," said a spokesperson for the flick. Debbie Harry, Mary-Louise Parker and Jim Jarmusch are expected to toast the Steins during the Tribeca Film Festival screening tonight at the Village 7 and the after-party at Bowery Electric.
