PIONEERING PEOPLE: COURTNEY LOVE
A Tribute: Celebrating The Magic and The Power 

PERFORMANCES BY: Michael Stipe / Natasha Lyonne / Justin Vivian Bond and Kenny Mellman / Meredith Graves / Roddy Bottum / Zia Anger & Annie Bielski / Davon / Rock Academy Rebel Girls

Basilica Hudson’s biennial Pioneering People fundraiser celebrates groundbreaking artists across a range of disciplines by hosting and honoring a one-of-a-kind person in our raw industrial church. This year’s event will celebrate the achievements and legacy of musician, songwriter, actor, performer and incomparable cultural force Courtney Love.

Through conversations, readings, video, and performance, the evening’s program will shine a light on all of the ways that Love has influenced culture and inspired women and marginalized people for almost three decades. The performances will illuminate the impact of Love’s vital and inspiring art and energy and the inspiration her work continues to instil in the next generation of artists and musicians. The evening’s performances will demonstrate the incredible power and the lasting legacy of Love’s iconic explorations and subversions of femininity, and honor her unapologetic, fearless protest of the patriarchy.

Courtney Love will be in attendance as our honored guest and will be featured in conversations, readings, and performances.

Joining Courtney Love in performances will be REM’s Michael Stipe; actor, writer and director Natasha Lyonne (Orange Is The New Black, Russian Doll); Justin Vivian Bond and Kenny Mellman, the performers behind the legendary cabaret duosome Kiki and Herb; writer and musician Meredith Graves (Perfect Pussy); Faith No More’s Roddy Bottum; a performance by cousins Zia Anger & Annie Bielski; Hudson-based Southern girl Davon; and students from Woodstock music school Rock Academy Rebel Girls.

Creative directed and produced by Basilica Hudson’s Co-Founder and Director Melissa Auf der Maur (former bassist of Courtney Love’s GRAMMY-nominated, certified multi-platinum, award-winning band Hole) and artist Joe Mama-Nitzberg, who was Creative Director of Hole’s Celebrity Skin and is a longtime creative collaborator and comrade of both Love and Auf der Maur.

The event will be hosted by a group of creative luminaries and friends, including Aaron Dessner, Miles Joris-Peyrafitte, Natasha Lyonne, Ryan McGinley, Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Elvis Perkins, Chloë Sevigny, Michael Stipe, Brandon Stosuy, Yelena Yemchuk and Jack Walls

In the words of Melissa Auf der Maur: “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! 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 acuity with music of a singular power to create a body of work with riveting emotional intensity."
