Courtney Love at Warsaw - 6/26/13
Courtney Love @ Warsaw - 6/26/2013

Courtney Love brought her tour with Brooklyn goths Starred (who have a fuller band than they did at their earlier shows) to Brooklyn's Warsaw last night (6/26) for the first of four NYC-area dates on her current tour. She had recently been talking about a new album, but as she's said in recent interviews, that album isn't going to come out until around Christmas (when she releases her memoir), and she isn't playing any of the new material on this tour. We don't have the exact setlist for the Brooklyn show, but her sets have been pretty similar all tour so far, including a few Hole classics like "Violet," "Miss World," and "Asking For It," and then mostly latter-day Hole and Courtney's solo material. Pictures from the Warsaw show and a video of her playing "Violet" at that show are in this post.

Courtney's tour with Starred continues, hitting the NYC-area again tonight (6/27) at Capitol Theatre (tickets), Friday (6/28) at Stone Pony Summerstage (tickets), and Sunday (6/29) at The Paramount (tickets).

More pictures and that video from Warsaw below...

She drew quite the crowd. I'm suprised.

real winners in the front row.

It's "pierogies," 9:51am.

Also, is it just me or do all the people in attendance look like 15 year olds who have no idea what growing up with Courtney Love is really like and are just there because Twitter tells them she's supposed to be important?

@9:35 it's called copyright infringement when you sell it for commercial gain.

10:16..many different spellings of it based on Russian or Polish..no matter how you spell it what is not to love!!!

Posted by Anonymous | June 27, 2013 10:30 AM

10:30am, it's clear that in this context, it's Polish. The Polish spelling would be "pierogies." There is no need for a holocaust of the language!

Nice try, troll. Doubt anyone will take the bait on that obviously sarcastic comment.

When did she start borrowing the new smashing pumpkins as her backing band?

Posted by Anonymous | June 27, 2013 1:30 PM

I thought this was a really good show, MUCH better than her last NYC-area performance at T5 in 2010. She can't quite sing like she used to, and the backing band isn't great, but she's really self-aware (finally) and overall the crowd loved it. Hard-pressed to think of another 48 year old woman who can flat-out rock and scream like her.

I wrote about it/her in more detail (am I allowed to do this here?):

Who cares about the spelling of "Pierogies"...
The real question is - Is it "Hummus" or "Hummos"?

I fucking love pierogies, perogies, however you want to spell it.

Crowd looks like Polish youth who were there for something else and just decided to hang around for the blond rock woman.

Are you guys fucking kidding...? I was there, front row center. Courtney is an astoundingly intelligent, talented songwriter and musician. Of course she drew "quite the crowd." We love her.

She looks beautiful (as always) and happy and healthy now. Just because she went through a difficult time with drugs doesn't mean you can disregard her as a human being. That's really, really low. Lower than one's "face looking like a foot."

I thought she threw up on stage, or is this just a rummer?

Posted by Jebuss | July 1, 2013 4:46 PM

This show was great. Courtney Love's performance was ferocious. The very essence of rock n roll.

Posted by John | July 3, 2013 12:32 AM

I went and although she was great, the audience totally sucked. I finally realized that I'm old.

Posted by Stephanie | July 3, 2013 7:32 PM

I think it is a great return to roots, but with a mature sound, can't wait for the album 

Posted by Rosalie | May 28, 2014 5:21 AM

I used to hate Courtney but I love her now. I think shes very misunderstood. She's a talented singer and people just tend to push all the blame towards Courtney when Kurt passed because the fans just could not accept suicide as the reason Kurt died.
