Courtney Love threw rose petals at me. I managed to get one, put it in my bra, and sure enough it had wilted by the time I got home. I felt like that pretty much summarized my quest to see her in Asbury Park.
But let me backtrack.
There are a few things you need to know about me before we proceed:
I’m from Jersey.
I’m kind of an asshole.
I love Courtney Love more than anything.
My high school years were lived in vintage slips and red lipstick. Read More

Story reprinted from the June/July 2013 issue of BUST MagazineCourtney Love is not happy. She’s not happy with the pretty hairdo that the stylist has just worked on for an hour, not happy with the lovely look the makeup artist gave her, and not happy with the designer clothes the wardrobe stylists have picked out. And she’s definitely not happy with how she appears in the photographer’s first test shots. It’s not that she doesn’t look great, but something’s clearly not sitting right with her. Read More

Rejoice - the high priestess of grunge hits the road solo this June! It’s been ages since she first claimed her throne as a '90s punk rock icon (Frances Bean isn’t a sprout anymore), but trust us - this mama hasn’t lost her edge.
When Hole played at Brooklyn’s Public Assembly last year, there were murmurs about a possible reunion tour (yes please!). For now, Courtney is heading off on her own with some new backing bandmates and a fresh set of songs.
If you’d do anything to see her, you better act fast – she’s only playing nine shows. Read More

Feminist icon and punk legend Kathleen Hanna is one of my many heroes. Defiant activist, outspoken pro-choicer, amazing songwriter, skilled musician, and prolific zine author, my friends and all kind of wish we were her. Her ground-breaking riot grrrl band Bikini Kill changed punk forever but Hanna wasn’t going to stop there. After Bikini Kill broke up in 1997, she went on to start electronic-dance-punk band Le Tigre, which is now sadly on hiatus.
Unstoppable Hanna is now bringing Julie Ruin back to life, after having released one album under the name in 1998. Read More
