Through conversations, readings, video, and performance, the evening’s program will shine a light on all of the ways that Love has influenced culture and inspired women and marginalized people for almost three decades. The performances will illuminate the impact of Love’s vital and inspiring art and energy and the inspiration her work continues to instil in the next generation of artists and musicians. The evening’s performances will demonstrate the incredible power and the lasting legacy of Love’s iconic explorations and subversions of femininity, and honor her unapologetic, fearless protest of the patriarchy.
This Saturday i’ll be performing at Basilica Hudson with and in honor of one of my dearest people, Courtney Love. join us in a celebratory dismantling of the patriarchy. the list of performers is insane.
