Michael Stipe and Chloë Sevigny Are Hosting a Tribute to Courtney Love

Courtney Love will be honored in a star-studded tribute for Basilica Hudson’s biennial Pioneering People fundraiser. “A Tribute: Celebrating the Magic and the Power” will be produced and creative directed by Love’s former Hole bandmate Melissa Auf der Maur and artist Joe Mama-Nitzberg.

The tribute will be hosted by Chloë Sevigny, Melissa Auf der Maur, Ryan McGinley, the National’s Aaron Dessner, and more. Courtney Love will be in attendance at the panel as an honored guest at the October 27th event. Performances, discussions, readings, and more will “shine a light on all of the ways that Love has influenced culture and inspired women and marginalized people.”

“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!” Auf der Maur said in a statement. “As the founder and frontwoman of the band Hole, and through her escapades as a Hollywood actress and all-around empowered voice for over three decades, Courtney broke new ground, combining lyrics of intellectual and intellectual acuity with music of a singular power to create a body of work with riveting emotional intensity.”

Tickets for the event are available here.
