Did anyone feel any extra Love at the Brooklyn Zine Fest?

April 17, 2012


We’ve recently learned that less than two days before the Brooklyn Zine Fest, Courtney Love reunited with Melissa Auf der Maur, Eric Erlandson, and Patty Schemel — the original Hole lineup — for a surprise show at Public Assembly.  On the very stage where zine makers Go for Broke Collective, Margo Dabaie, The Center for the Duplicated Arts, Chili’s World, and Jemibook were exhibiting at the Brooklyn Zine Fest, Hole performed together for the first time in fifteen years.

Sure, this probably explains why the entire venue was being hosed down and mopped (with Bleach?) early in the morning when we arrived, but it’s still very cool.  Congratulations to Public Assembly for hosting such an awesome moment in music history (regardless of how you feel about Love, it’s a pretty great moment), and thanks to Courtney Love for ostensibly leaving some weird, good vibes behind for us.

And hey, considering Francis Bean’s appreciation of print media, she may have even been at Public Assembly for the Brooklyn Zine Fest shortly after her mother’s big night.

    Oh, crap. I might have stepped on a place where a globule of Love’s spit had fallen. For hours!
