Courtney Love To Be Honored At New York Fundraiser

Basilica Hudson’s biennial Pioneering People fund-raiser will honor Courtney Love for her influence on women and music.

“A Tribute: Celebrating the Magic and the Power,” will be held at Basilica Hudson in Hudson, New York, on October 27.

The star-studded line-up of performers include R.E.M. frontman Michael Stipe, actress Chloë Sevigny, Aaron Dessner, Ryan McGinley, Yelena Yemchuk, Ebon Moss-Bachrach, and Brandon Stosuy.

Love’s former Hole bandmate and bassist Melissa Auf der Maur said in a statement that “Courtney’s legacy is vital to the voice of women in our culture. The passion she brings to her life and art fuels and inspires the long fought battle for the empowerment of alternative voices as they take center stage at last,” she added.

The event is co-directed and co-produced by Melissa and artist Joe Mama-Nitzberg.
