Hole, Foxy Shazam Member Picks Early Warnings (Music) Soundboard

When: Wed., July 14, 8 p.m. and Thu., July 15, 8 p.m. 2010

Of the many roles Courtney Love has played, in rock and out of it, her most recent incarnation is her most rock 'n' roll yet. She's going where no female rock star has gone before: the latter-day Jim Morrison zone. Love is a nouveau Lizard Queen for the queens and the real bitches, with a little showbiz-weary, end-of-the-road Judy Garland grand dame thrown in for good measure. Her new band and record can't hold a candle to Hole in its grunge prime, but there is something genuinely satisfying in seeing her soldier on, defying her haters and the burden assigned her as widow of the dead genius. —Jessica Hopper

Price: $35, 18+
