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. She’ll take the stage in Philidelphia, Boston, and Maryland on June 20, 21, and 22 before doing four dates around N.Y. Catch her on June 26 at Warsaw in Brooklyn, June 27 at the Capitol Theater in Port Chester, June 28 at Stone Pony Summer Stage in Ashbury Park, or June 29 at The Paramount in Huntington. In July she’ll  be in San Fransisco, return to the Stone Pony, and end it all in Anaheim, California.

The Paramount show and the non-N.Y.C. shows will feature Brooklyn’s own goth rockers, Starred. Can’t make it out? Try consoling yourself with Starred’s free-to-hear EP, Prison to Prison. Or blast some oldschool Hole and get over it.


Here’s a round-up of those tour dates:

6/20 - TLA, Philadelphia, P.A.

6/21 - House of Blues, Boston, M.A.

6/22 - The Fillmore, Silver Spring, M.D.

6/26 - Warsaw, Brooklyn, N.Y.

6/27 - Capitol Theatre, Port Chester, N.Y.

6/28 - Stone Pony Summer Stage, Asbury Park, N.J.

6/29 - The Paramount, Huntington, N.Y.

7/25 – The Independent, San Fransisco, C.A.

7/26 – Stone Pony Summer Stage, Asbury Park, N.J.

7/27 – City National Grove of Anaheim, Anaheim, C.A.
