On Friday night, I saw Courtney Love perform at a small club outside Los Angeles. It was a "greatest hits/oldies" show for hardcore fans. She was quite sober and in very good voice (for Love). I've seen her perform many, many times and this was frankly one of the best performances she has ever given. Low on drama, playful and fraught with the gothic pain that is Courtney Love's back catalog. I love her... This is being dubbed her "I'm Still Alive" Tour. A new album and her long awaited memoirs will be released late this year.
Here are two videos that I posted of her interaction with the audience and an acoustic performance of "Petals" from the Celebrity Skin album.
