Hole Reunite In Williamsburg

On Friday night following a screening of the documentary Hit So Hard: The Life & Near Death Story of Patty Schemel in Public Assembly on N. 6th St., all four members of Hole’s classic lineup performed together, unannounced, for the first time since ’99. They played two songs: Live Through This’s “Miss World” and the Ask For It EP’s Wipers cover “Over The Edge.” Gothamist says all of this could have been yours for a cool $10. Given the timing in relation to this week’s Twit-tirade about Dave Grohl and her daughter, you’d almost think Courtney Love was trying to purchase back some public goodwill, though that would imply that Courtney had some gauge of public goodwill in the first place. (Also interesting, since said Twit-tirade also worked in an @ tag of @xmadmx aka bassist Melissa Auf der Maur. Bygones!) Instead, just appreciate it for what it is, which is the unlikely reunion of Courtney, Melissa, Eric Erlandson, and Patty Schemel. Watch Courtney look for a guitar strap, say things about being in Williamsburg, hug Eric for a very long time, and sing two with Hole (with a swap of Yo La Tengo’s James McNew for Melissa on the Wipers cut) below:

Congratulations on the good press, Hit So Hard documentary!

  2. I dont know if I should be excited or annoyed.

  3. wow I hate this women.

  4. A waste of a Melissa Auf der Maur.

  5. You know what? Courtney Love has gotten to the point with me where she has done/said enough awful, annoying, crazy things that I’m satisfied that is just who she is and she’s not going to change. She’s not a talented enough musician or songwriter where I’m going to be able to forget that from a little reunion show (or even a big one) and I don’t want to see or hear from anymore in the world of music, I just want her to go away. Disagree if you like, but she’s run out of goodwill to win back from me.

  6. Huh. I think my comment got deleted. That’s kind of awesome.

  7. That’s pretty cool. Not that I thought they ever would. I guess if they can reform, then anyone can…
